Community Outreach and Engagement

No matter your background, we believe all people should have equal access to cancer prevention resources, the latest treatments, life-saving clinical trials, and survivorship support. Through community outreach and engagement efforts, we’re working to eliminate barriers at every stage of cancer to improve the health of our diverse community. Our approach to achieving this goal is simple: assure our Cancer Center is as accessible to the community as the public library.

Our Team

The Community Outreach and Engagement office assists our clinicians and researchers with developing authentic community and healthcare partnerships to extend reach, inform decisions, and assure that clinical, research and policy initiatives driven by the communities we serve are employed.
