This developing program is focused on cross-cutting themes of cancer health disparities and community-based research, recognizing Dallas’ great socio-economic and ethnic diversity, the fact that Parkland Memorial Hospital and its associated community clinics comprise Dallas County’s safety-net hospital system, and the existing involvement and networks of UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers in low income areas in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The researchers in this program have specific emphasis on breast, cervical and colorectal cancers.
