The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB has long been recognized as a leader in community outreach, most notably for its work in increasing education and awareness of cancer in medically underserved populations.

The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement collaborates with health care providers, administrators, policymakers and community-based nonprofit agencies to reach specific audiences within our catchment area.

The office supports researchers at the local, state and national levels who seek to recruit participants for various studies including clinical trials, observation studies and non-therapeutic trials. The office further supports O’Neal Cancer Center researchers by facilitating community partnerships, soliciting stakeholder input and presenting research findings.

You can learn more about the services provided by the Office of Community Outreach & Engagement from our OCOE fact sheet or request any of those services here.
