Reducing Cancer Disparities by Engaging Stakeholders

The Center for Health Decisions of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University will engage a Steering Committee (i.e., representatives of patients, providers, health systems, insurers, employers, and advocacy organizations), Patient and Stakeholder Advisory Committees (i.e., patients, physicians, administrators) from health care systems located in southeastern Pennsylvania, and communications industry partner organizations in a collective-impact learning community. Members will collaborate to adapt evidence-based interventions for implementation in the health systems to reduce cancer screening disparities.
