Cancer Center Without Walls

UVA’s Cancer Center Without Walls addresses the burden of cancer across Virginia and beyond by working with communities to identify and address their needs through dissemination of evidence-based cancer control and prevention strategies.  This is made possible because of mutually responsive partnerships within the community and the diverse researchers at UVA Cancer Center. We aim to promote health equity in cancer prevention and control and strive to address disparities in our catchment area.
