Project Community

Empowering Patients Living with Cancer, Survivors, Advocates and Consumers

OCE 2023 Project Community


Project Community is a public health outreach initiative established by the FDA Oncology Center of Excellence to patients living with cancer, survivors, advocates, families, and people living in underserved or under-represented urban and rural communities who are at greater cancer risk.

Our goal is to increase communication between underserved and under-represented communities and medical professionals and healthcare communities nationwide, to foster understanding, awareness, and participation to reduce cancer risk and increase survival.
