Project IMPAACCT

Stokes headshotProject IMPAACCT  ( Improving Awareness and Access to Cancer Care and Treatment), is a collaborative effort between Bishop Christopher Stokes and The CaRE2 Health Equity Center Community Outreach Core @ UF to address social determinants of health among people living in rural communities.  This project seeks to create a model for other institutions and communities at the community served in Micanopy, FL by the Willie Mae Stokes Community Center.

The goals of project IMPAACCT are:

  • Inform persons about Cancer and COVID-19 testing and prevention strategies

  • Assess how persons are coping with COVID-19, especially persons surviving cancer

  • Assess coping and grieving strategies

  • Identify opportunities to improve SDOH factors (i.e., food desert, transportation) for community members
