The Importance of Engagement

The Cancer Center is deeply committed to helping residents of our local communities, particularly those that are medically-underserved. 



We are keenly aware of the disparities that exist among minority and ethnic populations when it comes to cancer risk, prevention and treatment. 


Whether it is access to care, access to clinical trials, cancer screening, information about preventive behaviors or genetic profiling, members of our team go into our communities to study, communicate, and provide support to alleviate the unequal burden that cancer poses to  our constituents. 




By forming strategic partnerships with other health organizations, non-profits and public health administrations, we provide the most comprehensive information and service to the greatest amount of people.
