The University of Tennessee/ West Institute for Cancer Research works in partnership with many local civic and non-profit organizations to promote healthy lifestyle and educate the community on appropriate prevention and screening techniques among the most impoverished and underinsured zip codes in Memphis. Through the combined efforts of community partners and our Care Support and Community Outreach teams, West Cancer Center is leading community efforts in improving cancer education and outcomes in all sectors of the community.

Community Initiatives

At West Cancer Center, we consider it our calling – and highest obligation – to serve the community and guide them through this complex system of healthcare. With the high volume of underserved and underinsured in the Mid-South area, the need for a robust community outreach program has never been more critical. And while providing access to care is a daunting challenge, especially in the city of Memphis, it is one that we have been committed to since our doors first opened.
