ICC Caucus

The Caucus (ICCC) is the 501(c)(4) of the ICC (Intercultural Cancer Council)—-Mostly as a member of OVAC (One Voice Against Cancer) we lobby for increases on a yearly basis for NIH, NCI, and CDC. Our goal is to ensure that these entities are provided funding that further our efforts to eliminate the unequal burden of cancer among racial and ethnic minorities and medically underserved populations in the United States and its associated territories.
