Darlene Robinson and the Rev. Moses Finch

June is officially National Cancer Survivors Month, but for Darlene Robinson, every day is a day for celebration and encouragement. For years, Robinson has found creative ways to engage her community and keep her support group of cancer survivors connected and inspired.

The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement and the Experimental Therapeutics Research Program at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB are collaborating on a yearlong pilot program to support the translational research continuum from basic science to community health.

Fresh, home-grown vegetables are becoming more plentiful in counties across Alabama and Mississippi with the expansion of a program designed to increase healthy food options and provide more opportunities for physical activity. The introduction of the Harvest for Health initiative signifies a major step for participants in the ongoing Chronic Disease & Health Disparities Program at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB.

Joanice Thompson

Joanice Thompson didn’t have a manual or a textbook about community outreach, engagement or research recruitment when she arrived at UAB more than 30 years ago.

Yet, by the time she retired in 2018, Thompson had become a sought-after authority on community engagement and on ensuring that community-based research translates into opportunities and improvements for those communities.
