National Cervical Cancer Coalition
6520 Platt Ave. #693
West Hills, CA 91307
The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) is a voluntary, non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public and healthcare professionals about issues related to cervical cancer. (The cervix is the neck of the uterus or the lower portion of the uterus that extends into the vagina.) Prior to the development of cancer, abnormal changes occur within cells on the surface of the cervix (cervical dysplasia) that may be detected by a cervical smear test known as a "Pap smear." Abnormal cervical smears indicate the need for further investigation and possible treatment. The NCCC serves as an independent coalition of women's groups, affected individuals and family members, healthcare providers, companies, and associations. Established in 1997 and currently consisting of approximately 800 members, the coalition is dedicated to enhancing awareness of the traditional Pap smear and new technologies, treatments for cervical dysplasia and cancer, and reimbursement issues concerning cervical cancer screening.
