This a National Cancer Institute-funded Partnership whose goal is to reduce the burden of cancer among Hispanic/Latino communities in San Diego and Imperial Counties. We accomplish this by building research and research education capacity and by continuing to improve outreach and education to underserved communities in our area, with a special emphasis on Hispanics/Latinos

Our Partnership is comprised of three main components with the following objectives.
