NORA Cancer, Reproductive, Cardiovascular, and Other Chronic Disease Prevention (CRC) Cross-Sector Council

Council Members

The Council has several co-chairs — one co-chair from the NIOSH CRC Program along with a partner co-chair representing each of the three main health outcome areas (cancer, adverse reproductive outcomes and cardiovascular disease). The NIOSH Program manager and assistant coordinator also help to facilitate the work of the Council. Members attend meetings and participate in work-groups. Contact the Co-chair or NORA Coordinator with questions or comments or to volunteer.
