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.

Community Connections

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.
