The spirit of community for a cancer-free future

Every Hoosier should live a full life free of cancer. 

It’s an amazing, achievable goal. At IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, our investigators are asking bold questions and making milestone discoveries to prove #ResearchCuresCancer. And we never forget that we can prevent cancer, too.

It takes a community to keep the science going, increase the awareness of cancer risks, and encourage screening for early detection. Our partners, collaborators, and volunteers are helping us make a cancer-free future happen.

Office of Community Outreach & Engagement

Community outreach and engagement uses evidence-based strategies to help people prevent cancer from occurring and helping people get needed cancer screenings so that the disease can be diagnosed in early stages.
