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.

We build the capacity of UWCCC researchers to conduct research on cancer health disparities and cancer-related research with disparate populations. We provide assistance with grant proposals, research projects, publications, community engagement and partnership development. 

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.
