Cancer Health Disparities

Life expectancy for those diagnosed with cancer has improved in recent years, however, not everyone in Western New York (WNY) has benefitted. African-Americans and Hispanics, for example, are more often diagnosed with cancer in later stages when cure is less likely.

The Office of Cancer Health Disparities Research (OCHDR) at the world-renowned Roswell Park Cancer Institute is dedicated to research that advances the understanding of these disparities and to developing and offering integrated community-based services and educational programs tailored to meet the needs of these populations.

The mission of the OCHDR is to understand, reduce, eliminate and prevent cancer disparities in vulnerable and medically underserved populations and patients through trans-disciplinary research and programs.
