Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP) is funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities. Through a systematic and comprehensive approach, we collaborate, cooperate, share resources and information, and build capacity between researchers, trainees, outreach workers and organizations to advance research and training.
Region 5 serves Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa and Guam. We are a team of institutions, NCI cancer centers, organizations, community health educators, scientists and students. In our pursuit of ending cancer health disparities and making quality cancer care accessible for everyone, Region 5 has three primary aims:
Are you a trainee (graduate student - junior faculty) in cancer or cancer health disparities work? Want to support GMaP goals? Receive updates on activities and opportunities in the region? Reach out to us to learn more.
Mentors are an important part of our program. Sign up to be added to our list of regional expert researchers who are available to mentor our scholars and early-stage investigators.
Universities, community organizations, and other minority-serving institutions can support the GMaP mission to build regional support and efficient management of cancer health disparities research, training, and outreach.
We are committed to strengthening our regional network by supporting the next generation of cancer and cancer health disparities researchers through various training opportunities.
We also fund disparities projects through our pilot award program.
