Cancer Health Disparities
One of the efforts HCHD supports is community outreach to groups at risk from certain cancer types. Learn more about these risks.
Examples of Health Disparities
The following examples show the impact of cancer health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities and medically underserved communities.
The burden of certain cancer types is greater on some minority groups. To help reduce incidence and improve outcomes, Fox Chase Cancer Center offers programs aimed at prevention, detection and treatment for people at high risk of prostate, breast, ovarian, lung and colorectal cancers.
The Community Outreach program is designed to increase minority involvement in clinical, behavioral and prevention trials through the delivery of cancer education and screening programs. To learn more or to participate, please call 215-214-1594 or write Community.Outreach@fccc.edu.
