Tracie LewisWe are excited to announce that Tracie Lewis has joined the CCCR’s Colorectal Cancer Prevention Network (CCPN).  In assuming the position of Community Outreach Director, Ms. Lewis has taken on some of Anne Sinclair's and Annie Thibault’s former responsibilities pertaining to oversight of the outreach and development efforts.  Ms. Thibault will assume new responsibilities as CCPN Director, overseeing overall administration of the Network while continuing many of her current activities working alongside Ms. Lewis and Navigation Services Director Renay Caldwell.

Prior to joining the CCPN, Ms. Lewis was the State Health Systems Manager in South Carolina for the American Cancer Society, where she was employed for 17 years.  She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology from the College of Charleston, and a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science from the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina.  She has worked extensively with state agencies, health insurers, and quality improvement networks to increase breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening through implementation of evidence-based practices.  Ms. Lewis currently serves on the Cancer Control Advisory Council for the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the Coordinating Council for the South Carolina Cancer Alliance.  She also serves on the Alliance’s Colorectal Cancer Workgroup.

These changes in team structure reflect important growth and expansion of the CCPN over the past few years.  It is our hope that the reach and impact of the Network will increase with regard to colorectal cancer education, awareness, and screening throughout South Carolina.
