Community Outreach and Engagement

Our goal is to reduce cancer incidence and mortality, particularly among underserved communities. We do this by measuring and understanding our area’s cancer burdens, disparities and contributing factors and use this information to promote clinical, research and policy initiatives. Our researchers develop authentic community and healthcare partnerships to extend reach, drive decisions and assure that clinical, research and policy initiatives are truly driven by our community.
