Advancing cancer health disparities research and training

The Geographical Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP) is a systematic and comprehensive approach to facilitating collaboration, cooperation, information- and resource-sharing, and capacity-building among cancer health disparities researchers, trainees, outreach workers, and organizations, with the key goal of advancing cancer health disparities research and training.

Funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities, our GMaP region aims to:

  • Advance the science of cancer health disparities research
  • Promote the development of the next generation of competitive underrepresented cancer and cancer health disparities researchers
  • Contribute to measurable reductions in cancer health disparities

GMaP Region 5 (Formerly Region 6)

Region five serves Alaska, Northern California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, American Samoa and Guam.  We are a team of institutions, NCI cancer centers, organizations, community health educators, scientists, and students—who share one common goal—to end cancer health disparities and make quality cancer care accessible for everyone.
