Creating Community Catalysts
One of the Georgia Cancer Center’s main goals is to reach out to our community, engage
them in partnerships, and empower them to become catalysts and work together to increase
healthy behaviors, prevent many cancers and reduce the risk of developing many others.
From prevention through survivorship, we want to be the ‘go to’ resource and be with
the community every step of the way. We provide information that ranges from prevention
education to special events; from screenings to research updates; from clinical care
to survivorship programs – all with the focus on supporting those at risk of developing
cancer, those being affected by a diagnosis of cancer, and those suffering cancer
health disparities and inequities.
How to Connect
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. Our goal is to
continue building partnerships that promote engagement so that, together, we promote
health, reduce cancer incidence, and increase survival rates with quality of life.
Get Involved and Get Educated
The Georgia Cancer Center is proud to provide Patient- and Family-Centered Care inside our Outpatient Services clinic, the Georgia Radiation Center, the Children’s
Hospital of Georgia and multiple areas inside the main Augusta University Health Center.
We have a variety of Prevention and Screening Opportunities available for those concerned
about their risks of developing cancer.
Patient Care and Support
We believe in helping any cancer patient and any caretaker access our services and
support opportunities at any point from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship – always
with skill and compassion.
