Partnering for Prevention: The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network’s Collaborations Research with Federally Qualified Health Center
Session Moderator: Karen Glanz, PhD, MPH, University of Pennsylvania
The Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN) is a national network of academic, community-engaged researchers working to accelerate the adoption of evidence-based cancer prevention and control in communities through effective dissemination and implementation strategies, including among federally qualified health centers. This session discusses the outcomes of this partnership to reduce health disparities in disadvantaged populations.
