Outreach Programs Overview
Our goal is to reduce our region’s cancer mortality to the lowest in the nation
Working together, we can do something revolutionary
The vision of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is to reduce the cancer mortality rate in our region to the lowest in the nation. Our Community Outreach efforts bring the best health information, education, and treatments into our communities. Because county and state boundaries do not define where people find care, our community includes all of Oregon and eight counties in southern Washington.
At the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, our outreach program provides leadership for the cancer community. Together, we can reduce the burden of cancer. When we collaborate with other healthcare providers, governmental agencies, not-for-profit organizations and concerned citizens, we can overcome the barriers to good cancer outcomes.
