Community Outreach and Engagement at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center

Community Outreach and Engagement integrates with Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center's research programs and administrative initiatives to reduce the cancer burden and disparities within the catchment area and beyond. In a bi-directional manner, leveraging relationships with patients and community stakeholders, Community Outreach and Engagement obtains input from the community on priorities for research, cancer control and care and works with the center's research programs and community partners to bring those prioritized initiatives out to the community.

Research Advocacy

Cancer survivors and caregivers provide a unique perspective and play an important role in helping researchers bring the best science to those affected by cancer.  The Research Advocacy program provides opportunities for advocates to participate and contribute to the research process and outcomes for future patients.
