Community Outreach

Fostering community-academic partnerships

The goal of the Partnership Community Outreach Core is to foster community-academic partnerships that support cancer disparities research, research education, and dissemination and application of evidence-based cancer prevention recommendations with underserved communities and their providers. The Outreach Core aims to:

  • Support Partnership research projects in conducting impactful cancer disparities work within the context of community-engaged research
  • Provide educational opportunities tailored to undergraduate students, medical students and Early Stage Investigators in coordination with the Research Education Core
  • Support existing and new community-academic partnerships focused on cancer disparities research and practice
  • Disseminate evidence-based practices and resources for cancer prevention and control to researchers, providers, and communities

Through our ongoing community collaborations, we support Partnership research and training activities by facilitating community collaborations, supporting the adaptation and dissemination of cancer screening and prevention programs, and providing training and consultation to research projects.

We are always interested in discussing new collaborations and we want to hear from you! Please contact us at the link below.
