MOH meetings are open to all West Virginians interested in lessening the burden of cancer in the mountain state. Representing hundreds of cancer control professionals and advocates from around the state, MOH works in three areas of cancer: prevention, early detection, and quality of life. These priority areas align with MOH’s statewide WV Cancer Plan.
