Abstract

The American Cancer Society, Inc. (ACS) Study on Cancer in the Disadvantaged (Funch 1985) was summarized in a special report to the ACS Board of Directors (ACS Subcommittee on Cancer in the Economically Disadvantaged, June 1986), along with recommendations on what the ACS might do about the report findings. The special report was approved and disseminated to all ACS committees and departments. These committees were charged with developing short- and long-range plans outlining action it would take toward implementation of each recommendation.
