Cancer Survivorship Center

Our Mission is to create, expand, and disseminate knowledge addressing survivorship across the cancer continuum
Our Vision is to conduct research that alleviates the impact of cancer in South Carolina, the nation, and the world.

A focus of the center is identifying and intervening on factors that produce an unequal burden of suffering, particularly among minority populations.
