Planning and Evaluation Core

We initiate new projects and continuously evaluate ChicagoCHEC’s impact and progress toward its mission to advance cancer health equity via scientific discovery, education, training, and community engagement.

How does ChicagoCHEC assess large scale impact, maximize resources, and embark in new directions? The Planning and Evaluation Core is at the helm for initiating new projects and continuously evaluating ChicagoCHEC’s impact and progress. The Planning and Evaluation Core includes the Internal Advisory Committee (IAC) and the Program Steering Committee (PSC). The IAC leads internal planning, evaluation, and new project selection under the Incubator and Catalyst Funding program. The PSC provides external review and evaluation. We strive to guide ChicagoCHEC toward data-driven continuous improvement.
