Partners

We partner with the University of Illinois Chicago, a designated minority-serving institution, along with UI Health and Mile Square Health Center, a group of 14 federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) to leverage our diverse group of researchers, clinicians and patients to create equitable access to advances in cancer screening, prevention and treatment.

Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) assures that community voices drive our research, scientific outreach, and advocacy in practice and policy. The CAB represents 7 internal and external stakeholders, including regional American Cancer Society affiliates. The CAB advises the I-CHER Center on the research (including pilot projects), implementation and dissemination strategies to communities, practitioners, and policymakers. The Chair of the CAB also serves in the Administrative Core.
