other treatment facilities offering low-cost transportation services

to patients.

Strategy 1 – Identify barriers to provision of low-cost


Strategy 2 – Based on the barriers identified, partner

with groups across the state to discuss and plan how to

eliminate these barriers.

Goal A: Reduce Cancer Control Disparities in Arkansas

Objective 3: Increase cancer disparities documentation and intervention on a systematic basis in Arkansas.

Strategy 3 – Expand and enforce cancer data collection and reporting on racial/ethnic minorities and use subpopulation
