Working together to reduce cancer disparities

The Cancer Health Disparities Initiative works with communities, researchers, and clinicians across Wisconsin and beyondto improve the health of everyone who faces greater cancer risk.

We are committed to the Wisconsin Idea and employ a community-based participatory approach, which places community-defined needs, partnership and capacity building at the center of our work.

We implement outreach and education activities with communities, develop research, promote access to care and provide training for UWCCC staff and trainees.
