The Delaware Cancer Consortium released the final progress report on its first four-year plan, Turning Commitment Into Action, in 2008; and began working on its second four-year plan.
William W. Bowser, Esq., chair of the Delaware Cancer Consortium, wrote in the introduction: "In 2002, Governor Minner commissioned a task force to report on cancer in Delaware. It led to the development of a roadmap—a four-year plan—that stated measurable goals. As we accomplished the things we set out to do, we developed clarity along the way that guided our actions."
