Our Mission


Our Mission: To support and promote the cancer registry professional by sponsoring educational opportunities and providing a source for peer networking.

In other words CRAAZ exists to connect the community of cancer registrars throughout the state of Arizona!

Cancer Registry Association of Arizona is a non-profit, tax exempt organization representing cancer registry professionals who are trained and certified to collect cancer data in an accurate and timely manner, following AJCC, Collaborative Staging, SEER and Multiple Primary/Histology rules and guidelines. The data that registrars collect is used to monitor the diagnosis, treatment and survival of cancer patients and in research to hopefully someday find a cure for cancer.
