community engagement health equity office: partnerships enhancing cancer care

Reducing cancer disparities is at the heart of the University of Illinois Cancer Center.

The University of Illinois Cancer Center Community Engagement and Health Equity Office (CEHE) works to decrease cancer burden and increase access across the cancer care continuum. Our role is to:

  • Build relationships with community partners
  • Use community navigation best practices to increase access to cancer screening and cancer care
  • Disseminate project outcomes to Cancer Center programs
  • Advocate for policy changes that are responsive to the communities we serve

We achieve results through partnerships with UI Health, Mile Square Health Center, and more than 50 community and national organizations. Using an integrated population health and health disparities framework, our outcomes inform University of Illinois Cancer Center programmatic research.
