Introducing Health Equity Partners
In response to an increased awareness of health disparity issues locally and nationally, Moffitt Cancer Center is launching a new corporate membership program called the Moffitt Health Equity Partners, which will provide corporations with a powerful new way to contribute to the vision of health equity for all people within our diverse Tampa Bay communities.
Funds raised through the Moffitt Health Equity Partners program each year will support the following activities:
- Research Programs
- Education in the Community
- Diversifying our Faculty
- Regular Screenings
- Transportation Initiatives
Moffitt Cancer Center is committed to providing annual stewardship reports to each Health Equity Partners organization, outlining progress made in specific programs supported by your funds or providing a broader look at all programs supported by your gift and the gifts of others. In the area of research, these reports will provide an update on the progress of funded projects, including detail on the vision, planning, execution and next steps, depending on the stage of research. In the area of community outreach, the Moffitt Foundation will provide details on the types of activities your support allowed us to conduct in underserved communities, as well as number of individuals reached, number of activities and follow-up actions where appropriate, such as providing vouchers for follow-up screenings.
