Community Advisory Board

The MCC Community Outreach and Engagement (COE) Community Advisory Board (CAB) serves as an essential link between the community and the cancer center, promoting equitable and consistent exchange of information and ideas about ways to address the cancer burden faced by those living in San Diego and Imperial Counties.


The mission of the Moores Cancer Center Community Outreach and Engagement Community Advisory Board is to help guide, prioritize, and find solutions to address the needs of our diverse community in the planning, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of cancer-related research, clinical care, and community outreach, education, and engagement. The CAB drives, guides, and participates in community-engaged research, cancer prevention and control activities, and clinical care efforts that have a major impact on health.
