Welcome to KCP

Collaboration is at the heart of the Kentucky Cancer Program. The Kentucky Cancer Program is a statewide cancer prevention and control program affiliated with the University of Kentucky/Markey Cancer Center and the University of Louisville/Brown Cancer Center. At the heart of KCP, is the engagement and collaboration of local organizations, providers and partners in planning, implementing and evaluating cancer prevention and control activities. These partnerships propel our mission to reduce cancer incidence and mortality through education, research, and service programs. Delivery of these services is provided by regional cancer control specialists serving all 120 counties in Kentucky.
