Nationally, only about 5 percent of patients enrolled in clinical trials are minorities. Georgia CaRES (Georgia Cancer Research) is helping to change that paradigm. Georgia CaRES is a National Cancer Center-funded initiative—one of only 12 nationally—that aims to provide minority and underserved cancer patients with more access to the latest cancer clinical trials and treatments, right in their own communities.
The Georgia CaRES partnership network includes: Augusta Oncology Associates, DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Georgia Cancer Center in Augusta, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta and University Cancer & Blood Center, LLC in Athens.
The network also offers national pediatric cancer clinical trials right here in the
state along with trials to help improve how cancer care is delivered.
