Organization profile

The Office of Community Outreach is Fox Chase Cancer Center’s bridge to the community. Through offsite cancer education and screening programs, we bring the high quality information and services expected from a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center directly and conveniently to neighborhoods throughout the Greater Philadelphia region and South Jersey. In addition, we offer onsite services, as well as opportunities to take part in research projects. This program is lead by Charnita Zeigler-Johnson, PhD, MPH. Our programs are available to everyone, but we make a special effort to reach populations and neighborhoods that experience health disparities (populations that experience a higher cancer burden) because we believe that everyone deserves the same access to quality health care. To make sure we address the community’s needs and interests, we partner with diverse community organizations that also care about the health and well-being of their neighbors. Together, we help people learn how to lead healthier lives and lower their risk of cancer.
