Welcome to The Association of North Carolina Cancer Registrars

The Association of North Carolina Cancer Registrars is a non-profit professional organization for cancer registrars and other allied health professionals interested in cancer data.

ANCCR was originally founded as the Tumor Registrars Association of North Carolina (TRANC) in 1977 to provide a forum for the registry profession in North Carolina.

Luna M. Woods, Chief Registrar at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, invited other NC registrars and those in ancillary fields to attend a meeting in June 1977 to form a state association. With the support of the American College of Surgeons, eighteen people attended that first meeting.
