The Cancer Care Equity Program (CCEP) was established in January 2012 to serve as a bridge between research and outreach efforts to address cancer disparities at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Creation of the program demonstrates the commitment of Dana-Farber to local communities at high risk but with limited access to high-quality treatment.
The role of the CCEP is to:
- Improve local outcomes via clinical access to the spectrum of preventive medicine, treatment, and trials at Dana-Farber for the underserved
- Unite disparities-related research across the organization
- Initiate and facilitate research in cancer disparities
- Aid established outreach and educational programs
Through these efforts, the CCEP aims to broaden access to vulnerable patient populations and join our community partners in the quest for equitable care across the spectrum of cancer-related disease.
