Office of Health Communications and Health Disparities


Welcome to the Office of Health Communications and Health Disparities (OHCHD) at Fox Chase Cancer Center! Our office works each day to reduce cancer risks for diverse groups of people. Not only do we teach the public about cancer and their cancer risk, we also research the best ways to help people to reduce their risk for cancer.

We believe that we only do well in the fight against cancer when we work closely with the community. Our lively and diverse staff is focused on improved health for the public. Contact us to learn how we can work as a team to reduce cancer.

The American Cancer Society projects that about 577,190 Americans will die of cancer in 2012; that's more than 1,500 people each day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. (heart disease is the first), causing nearly 1 of every 4 deaths.
