Community Outreach and Engagement

Meaningful engagement with the community in our cancer research, clinical care and programmatic efforts to better understand and serve the population’s needs.

UNC Lineberger is North Carolina’s only public National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center.

The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement ensures that UNC Lineberger research, clinical care, and programmatic efforts are timely, relevant, responsive, and infused with community perspectives, including those perspectives of policy makers, community providers and public health practitioners, cancer patients and caregivers, and the public at large.
