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 Georgia 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.

Get Involved and Get Educated 

The Georgia Cancer Center is proud to provide Patient- and Family-Centered Care inside our Outpatient Services clinic, the Radiation Oncology Center, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia and multiple areas inside the main Augusta University Medical Center. However, our passion and our work does not stop inside the walls of those buildings.

We have a team dedicated to reaching out to churches, businesses and other organizations in the community. The goal is to give you the information you need to make the best decision for your health and/or the health of a loved one.

Consider sharing cancer-related health information with your employees, congregation or another community group!

Cancer center community events

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.
