Please note that in response to a request from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the
Institute for Population Health Improvement’s California Cancer Registry Program has changed its
name to:
California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance (CalCARES) Program
No changes in the function or operation of the program are associated with the name change. As you
may know, the administrative and management structure of the CCR program has changed from
previous contract periods. CDPH has four separate grants - one each with UCD, PHI, CPIC and USC.
Each of these four separate entities is viewed as a partner in helping CDPH to meet goals and
objectives for the state mandated cancer registry program. In light of this change, and in order to
distinguish ourselves from the state program, we have chosen a name to better reflect our
contribution to CDPH.
