Winship Community Outreach

Winship Community Outreach focuses on leveraging existing strengths in community-based participatory research, education and planning on health literacy programs in oncology with non-profit organizations, large employers, faith-based and secular organizations.

Community outreach is an activity of providing services to populations who might not otherwise have access to those services.

With respect to Winship Cancer Institute, outreach is any cancer related activity outside of the Emory University system that works to prevent, improve or impact cancer care.
