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. 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 and across the state. These community web pages offer information to promote healthy, active lifestyles and ways to access cancer educational materials and resources. Our cancer information and education materials and resources are free and downloadable for use at health and wellness events, in the classroom, or as handouts at other gatherings.

Education Services

The Community Outreach and Engagement team prepares presentations and serves as guest speakers about the different forms of cancer and ways to reduce risks of developing the disease. We can create exhibits and displays to share at community health fairs, industry sponsored events, or faith-based events. We provide written materials to increase awareness about the different types of cancer and how people can promote prevention in their life and the lives of their family members and friends.

Consider sharing cancer-related health information with your employees, congregation or another community group! To request a speaker or Georgia Cancer Center's participation at your community event or health fair in the greater Augusta area, contact us via email or by calling 706- 721-8353. We also have a Presentation or Exhibitor Request Form [PDF] you can complete online.

Student Public Service Announcement Competition

Students in the Department of Communication at Augusta University's team up with the Georgia Cancer Center each spring and fall semester to produce video public service announcements (PSAs, 30 seconds) about a pre-determined cancer topic. The goal of this competition is two-fold: it helps our Communication students learn videography and video editing skills while helping the Georgia Cancer Center to fulfill its mission of educating the community about important cancer topics. For all PSA developments, there are guidelines that are to be adhered to for all students. These will be shared by your instructor, as well as the Georgia Cancer Center's representative.

*Winners within each category are recognized at an award ceremony planned in conjunction with the Communications department and the Cancer Information and Awareness team.

Categories

All PSA’s are judged based on five categories:

  • Audience Favorite
  • Best Representation of Theme
  • Harmonic Convergence
  • Special Merit Award for Story Originality
  • Special Merit Award for Artistic Creativity
