The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) was created to take advantage of:
The opportunity to gain new knowledge about the long-term effects of cancer and therapy, knowledge that can be used to help design treatment protocols and intervention strategies that will increase survival and minimize harmful health effects.
The obligation to educate survivors about the potential impacts of cancer diagnosis and treatment on their health and implementing programs for the prevention and early detection of late effects.
The CCSS provides a dynamic framework and resource in which to investigate current and future questions regarding consequences of therapy, genetic associations, disease processes and causation, interventions, and quality of life among childhood cancer survivors. We invite interested researchers to browse the website.

BRFSS completes more than 400,000 adult interviews each year, making it the largest continuously conducted health survey system in the world.
