The UF CaRE2 Health Equity Center is officially open for business at all three UF campuses in our catchment area! We held an event in Jacksonville on April 29 ,and an event in Gainesville on May 17.

We are so grateful for the support the center has received from the UF Health leadership across all three campuses (Lake Nona, Jacksonville, and Gainesville), our program directors at NCI, and our CaRE2 colleagues at USC and FAMU. It was wonderful to connect with the students and trainees at each campus as well as members of local community groups that are working to eliminate cancer health disparities. We are excited to move forward after such a strong start.
