Cancer Health Disparities Initiative

Working together to reduce cancer disparities

The Cancer Health Disparities Initiative of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center works with researchers, clinicians and communities across Wisconsin and beyond to reduce inequities in the burden of cancer, also called cancer health disparities.

We focus on research, outreach and education:

We build the capacity of UWCCC researchers to conduct research related to cancer health disparities and cancer research with disparate populations by providing assistance with grant proposals, research projects, publications, community-academic partnership development and working with disparate communities.

We conduct outreach, education, formative research and program evaluation activities with underserved communities.

We provide training and education to UWCCC members, staff and trainees to enhance their ability to conduct cancer health disparities research and effective community engagement.
