Detroit HealthLink for Equity in Cancer Care recently received a $99,000+ Health Education and Community Benefit Grant from the DMC Foundation/Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan to extend the HealthLink Model to Arab American communities in partnership with ACCESS in Dearborn MI. ACCESS will host a Cancer Action Council (CAC) that will meet monthly and work with staff from ACCESS and Karmanos Cancer Institute to identify cancer-related research priorities. The CAC will then collaborate with Karmanos researchers to move research ideas forward.
In total, Detroit HealthLink is recruiting members for three new CACs located at…
- ACCESS, focusing on cancer issues in Arab American communities in Dearborn
- LGBT Detroit, focusing on cancer issues in LGBT communities of color; and
- Karmanos Cancer Institute, focusing on Cancer, Communities, and Technology.
