The Special Populations Network for Cancer Control (SPNCC) targeted its cancer awareness and behavior-change programs within Region 2 of the National Medical Association (the premier professional society for African-American physicians in the United States), which comprises Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. The SPNCC Steering Committee presented seminars and workshops throughout Region 2 and guided the Network's research and programmatic agenda.
