2012 Texas Cancer Plan

  • CPRIT has announced the 2012 Texas Cancer Plan.  The Texas Cancer Plan (the Plan) aims to reduce the cancer burden across the state and improve the lives of Texans. As the statewide call to action for cancer research, prevention, and control, the Plan identifies the challenges and issues that affect our state and presents a set of goals, objectives, and strategies to help inform and guide communities in the fight against cancer. Read more about the Plan, download the Plan in PDF form, and view other resources that YOU can use to help promote the Plan in your community. (30 April 2012)

CPRIT Portfolio Maps

  • Organizations interested in applying for a CPRIT Prevention award now have access to portfolio maps showing counties reached by CPRIT's current Prevention grants. Maps are available by cancer type as well as type of program – public education, professional education, clinical service, survivor care, and healthy lifestyle/obesity prevention.

Dietary Self Assessment Tool

  • The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and its contractor, Westat, are pleased to announce the availability of an updated version of the Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour Dietary Recall (ASA24), an innovative, web-based dietary assessment tool. The ASA24 system enables automated self-administered 24-hour dietary recalls. The system consists of a Respondent application used by participants to enter recall data and a Researcher application used by researchers to manage study logistics and obtain data analyses. The tool can be used by researchers for epidemiological, intervention, behavioral, or clinical research.
  • Clinicians may also find it useful for diet assessment and nutrition counseling, and educators may find it to be a useful teaching tool. Detailed information about ASA24, including information on registering a study, and a demonstration (demo) of the updated Respondent application, is available here.
