Community Connections  

These community web pages offer information to promote healthy, active lifestyles and ways to access cancer educational materials and resources.

Sharing information through education and participation at area events are two ways in which we actively partner with our community.

Our goal is to continue building partnerships that promote engagement so that, together, we promote health and reduce cancer.

We want to be your "go to" resource for helping keep you, your family, your friends, co-workers, and employers that make up our community informed about ways to prevent cancer and the role that screening plays in detecting cancer early. We'll share ways that novel research taking place at the Cancer Center is impacting cancer.

The GRU Cancer Center is committed to reducing cancer and its burden in our community - locally, regionally, state-wide, and globally. 

Educational Services 

  • Presentations or guest speakers about different types of cancer and ways to reduce the chances of getting cancer.
  • Exhibits and displays at area community or faith-based events and health fairs.
  • Written information to increase cancer awareness and promote cancer prevention or risk reduction for your organization's newsletters.

Request a Speaker

To request a speaker or GRU Cancer Center's participation at your community event or health fair in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), contact us via email at: chollimon@augusta.edu and/or complete the Presentation or Exhibitor Request Form.

Events Calendar

As part of our community education we are happy to participate in events throughout the CSRA like health fairs, training, workshops, conferences, and festivals. We try to honor all requests and ask that you submit your request at least 6-8 weeks prior to your scheduled event.
