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

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.

Involvement

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 Support

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.
