Office of Community Outreach and Engagement (COE)
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.
The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement will help set up ways to analyze and put into place evidence-based and community-participatory research about the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes related to cancer, especially the disparities throughout North Carolina.
Our main goals are:
- Monitor the cancer burden and identify disparities in North Carolina
- Synergize institutional and community efforts and engage diverse stakeholders in addressing the cancer burden and reducing cancer health disparities in North Carolina
- Amplify cancer outreach and supportive care efforts with diverse stakeholders
- Facilitate impactful and equity-focused cancer research in North Carolina and beyond
