OCOE Events

Our Signature Events

Engaging with the community is a key priority for the OCOE. We collaborate with partner organizations to plan and implement events and share information, strategies and resources to expand our collective knowledge on the health disparities affecting different communities. 

Our community approach creates a feedback loop designed to close the gap in health disparities and reduce the incidence and mortality rates from cancer and other diseases. We work with community members to improve knowledge and awareness of cancer risk factors, screening services and treatment options

Community Grants Program

In order to expand community outreach capacity we aim to build sustainable outreach and research capacity with diverse communities in Washington State. By pooling resources through the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium, we are working to build greater cohesion between local communities and the research enterprise.

Since January of 2014, we have been working on this endeavor by:

  • developing and disseminating a community grant request for application (RFA) to fund community organizations to implement a program in their communities (grants have ranged from $2,500-$15,000)
  • providing technical assistance to community organizations as they implement their programs.
