Community aligning our research goaLs and objectives with the community we serve

The overarching goal of the Community Outreach, Engagement and Equity office is to partner with community members, patients, families, clinicians, health system leaders, policymakers and UFHCC scientists to reduce the cancer burden in the 22 counties we serve through novel outreach and engagement programs that span the cancer care continuum — from prevention to survivorship.

The UF Health Cancer Center’s Community Outreach, Engagement and Equity office is guided by a Community Advisory Board, which plays a vital role in collaborating with our leadership team, program directors and Cancer Center members to ensure that our work focuses on cancer-related issues that are critical to the communities we serve. The success of the Cancer Center and the CAB hinges upon members’ expertise working with diverse communities and stakeholder groups in North Central Florida.
