Cancer Prevention and Control


The goal of this program is to foster the generation of high-quality cancer prevention and control research that addresses cancer health disparities and that is responsive to the needs of tribal and other high-risk, under served communities in Oklahoma. 

The scientific aims of the program are to:

  • Develop and test new strategies to measure and improve quality of life, quality of cancer care, and access to care for patients, survivors, and family members/caregivers

  • Conduct high-quality and innovative epidemiological, communications, behavioral, and surveillance research that explores the unequal cancer burden among populations in Oklahoma
  • Develop and test novel interventions to foster the adoption and improve the delivery of effective cancer prevention and detection services among under served populations in the state
  • Engage under served tribal and other communities in collaborative cancer prevention and control research and strategies to reduce cancer-related health disparities
