Faith-Based Partners

The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center has had long-standing partnerships with many area churches and other faith-based organizations to provide information on cancer early detection and screening. Many programs, such as Body & Soul, No Menthol Sunday, Pink Sunday and Navy Sunday have been implemented via faith-based institutions for over 20 years.

Local Community-Based Organizations

In order to effectively conduct community-based outreach and research programs, the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center has collaborated with local community-based organizations in every community it serves. The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement collaborates with many local municipalities, non-profit organizations, schools and other civic groups to reach individuals from underserved communities. These partnerships are vital to the Cancer Center’s community efforts.
