About ChicagoCHEC

ChicagoCHEC is a comprehensive partnership to advance cancer health equity that brings together the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), a federally designated Minority-Serving, Hispanic-Serving, and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution, and Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU), a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution, with the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
