Project Community

Empowering Patients Living with Cancer, Survivors, Advocates and Consumers

OCE 2023 Project Community

Project Community is a public health outreach initiative established by the FDA Oncology Center of Excellence for patients living with cancer, survivors, advocates, families, and people living in underserved urban and rural communities who are at greater cancer risk.

Our goal is to increase communication between the underserved and medical professionals in communities nationwide, to foster understanding, and awareness to reduce cancer risk and increase survival.
