Welcome to The Tennessee Cancer Coalition
The Tennessee Cancer Coalition (TC2) was formed to measurably reduce the burden of cancer on the citizens of Tennessee by implementing a collaborative statewide plan driven by data, science, capacity, and outcomes.
Director, Oncology Services, Wellmont Health System
Jason Searcy, FACHE is the director of oncology services at Wellmont Health System. His involvement with the Tennessee Cancer Coalition (TC2) began in 2010 as a member and the Northeast Chair. Searcy was instrumental in rekindling cancer control activity in the Northeast. In 2010 leadership from the Northeast established an executive team to establish a new structure and direction. They established manageable sub committees aligned with the state cancer control plan and began to commit to meaningful cancer control activity.
Since 2010, Jason continued with his involvement and commitment to TC2 serving on the executive committee. Jason served as Secretary/Treasurer in 2011 and Vice Chair in 2012. In 2013, Searcy volunteered the Northeast to host the 9th Annual Tennessee Cancer Coalition Summit. The Summit and its success further demonstrated the Northeast’s commitment and involvement to reduce the burden of cancer among Tennesseans in the Northeast.
