UACC North Central/East AZ Cancer Policy Town Hall


The University of Arizona Cancer Center's Community Outreach and Engagement is hosting a series of town halls across our great state of Arizona to understand the needs and assets of communities regarding cancer prevention and control, treatment, and survivorship to inform cancer policy.

The town hall will be co-facilitated by Dr. Heather Carter (AZ State Senator LD 15) and Dr. Omar A. Contreras (UACC Program Director of Policy and Translational Research) and will serve as an opportunity to engage in a dialogue with community members, tribal health leaders, healthcare providers, educators, and elected officials to improve cancer care in the north central/east community of Arizona.

Seating is limited, so kindly register at
