Read about our history, our breakthroughs, and the resources that help us support the health of our neighborhoods and communities. he role of Dana-Farber’s Community Benefits office is to support the Institute’s goal to reduce cancer risk among medically underserved populations. We work with city and state health departments, community partners, and Boston-based coalitions to assess and monitor the needs of local residents with respect to cancer control. In collaboration with staff throughout Dana-Farber, we serve as a bridge with community organizations and establish evidence-based and sustainable outreach programs. We are on the front lines of supporting and collaborating on programs designed to eliminate disparities in breast, colon, and skin cancer; educate diverse populations about tobacco cessation, human papillomavirus (HPV) prevention and screening; and strengthen the support system for medically underserved populations. In short, we are committed to making Dana-Farber’s care and research findings more accessible to everyone within and outside its walls.
