Community Advisory Board

The MCW Cancer Center works closely with members of our community to understand and address the cancer disparities in the areas we serve.
Comprised of dedicated cancer survivors as well as community, academic, and non-profit leaders, the Community Advisory Board advises Cancer Center leadership and teams regarding actions and approaches to addressing the cancer burden in eastern Wisconsin. In addition, the Board guides, and participates in community-engaged research, cancer prevention and control activities, as well as clinical care and policy change.
