Addressing Disparities and Promoting Health Equity

American Cancer Society is committed to saving more lives by reducing the unequal burden of cancer experienced within certain populations to include racial/ethnic minority and rural populations.

As a result of corporate donations, the Society has expanded existing community based work dedicated to addressing disparities in breast and colorectal cancers.  The projects highlighted are funded by our corporate donors and advanced in partnership with community health systems, community health workers, and culturally diverse volunteers.

Through generous donations from corporate partners and collaboration with communities committed to addressing disparities, your American Cancer Society is making a difference. Read more.
