Creating Community Catalysts

 

The Georgia Cancer Center is dedicated to empowering members of our community to become catalysts for change. By fostering positive partnerships, we hope to work with our patients and our community to increase healthy behaviors and reduce the risk of developing cancer.

From prevention to survivorship, we strive to be the community’s “go-to” resource for cancer treatment and care. Every step of the way, we work to provide our patients and their loved ones with vital information, screenings, research updates, top-notch clinical care and survivorship programs, all with the focus of supporting those affected by a cancer diagnosis and finding a cure.

Connection

We believe in connecting with the communities we serve. Learn more about our work with smokers and their families to help them kick the habit and sign up for screenings to catch cancer early.

Involvement

The research conducted at the M. Bert Storey Research Building would not be possible without the generous donations of our community. Your gift could make all the difference in helping in the fight against cancer.
