More than one million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year, and low-income communities and communities of color at highest risk. The Public Health Institute works identify the causes of cancer, track and monitor cancer rates, reduce and prevent cancer, and increase access to high-quality, affordable treatment options for all people who need it. Our cutting-edge research, data visualization, and mapping of cancer incidents uncover exposures to environmental toxins and their connections to cancer, as well as calculate the cost of environmental burdens. We offer cancer registry software that provides quality data collection, and powerful, reliable, user-friendly abstracting and reporting. Our cancer prevention programs work closely with community residents, health coalitions, business leaders, elected officials, and others, focusing on the needs of underserved communities most vulnerable to environmental health hazards.
