Since its creation the registry has successfully conducted population-based cancer surveillance for the Cherokee Nation services population living within the 14 county Tribal Jurisdictional service area, in accordance with prevailing standards required by the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. All data is abstracted and coded according to SEER standards. We submit data to SEER twice a year, through the New Mexico Tumor Registry in the prescribed format.
