Moncrief Cancer Institute is committed to developing and maintaining collaborations and partnerships with cancer service organizations and healthcare providers through community outreach. We partner with organizations across North and Central Texas to educate communities on the importance of the prevention and early detection of cancer, reaching approximately 1 million people each year.
Our goals are to:
- Increase public awareness and access to cancer prevention services
- Educate the public on cancer risk factors
- Provide patient and family support and education for the disease process and treatment options
We focus on engaging, educating, and empowering patients with cancer and those at risk for cancer so they can benefit from the research, care, and expertise of Moncrief Cancer Institute and UT Southwestern.
Our community outreach initiatives include coordinating community cancer screenings, attending health fairs, and participating in educational forums for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals. In addition, we welcome the opportunity to speak to your organization about our programs and services. Moncrief Cancer Institute collaborates with physicians, medical facilities, and community agencies to provide cancer support services to patients and survivors.
