Office of Equity & Minority Health

The Office of Equity and Minority Health strives to address the unique cancer issues facing minority and medically underserved populations. We work to reduce cancer health disparities by focusing on the following:

  • Workforce diversity: Enhance training for minority individuals pursuing healthcare or biomedical research careers, particularly those focusing on cancer
  • Advocacy and public policy: Inform the public of cancer policy issues and increase awareness of our established advocacy efforts and self-advocacy skills
  • Community engagement and organizing: Partner with a broad range of community and public health organizations to better respond to the needs of minority and medically underserved groups
