OCE’s Project Community aims to help patients and consumers learn more about types of cancer, cancer treatment, and participating in clinical trials. We have gathered information below on several topics from the FDA, the U.S. National Cancer Institute, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Precision medicine, sometimes known as "personalized medicine" is an innovative approach to tailoring disease prevention and treatment that considers differences in people's genes, environments, and lifestyles. Watch this 3-minute video produced by Project Community.
