Fox Chase’s Community Outreach program involves the community in
a variety of ways. We partner with community organizations, religious
institutions and health ministries in the Philadelphia area to bring cancer
education, prevention and screening programs to the community. These
partnerships enhance the opportunity to reach a large community audience
where our trained staff can provide programs tailored to the specific needs of
each partner or organization. Working together with the community, we can
increase cancer awareness, encourage participation in cancer screenings and
clinical trials, and improve access to the best cancer treatment.
