Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program

Connecting researchers and resources to eliminate cancer health disparities

People across the United States are affected by cancer in many different ways. Differences in race and ethnicity, income, geographic residence, education, healthcare access, and cancer research can create health disparities for individuals who experience these differences. The Geographical Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP) seeks to reduce these disparities by supporting the next generation of researchers to advance the science of cancer health disparities and create health equity for all who are affected by cancer.
