Geographical Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP)
Moffitt Cancer Center received a grant from the National Cancer Institute Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities to bring together researchers, trainees, new and early-stage investigators, and community health members to identify and prioritize region-specific cancer research, education, outreach and training needs. The grant is part of the Geographical Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP), a network of regional hubs that provide a systematic approach to facilitating collaboration, cooperation, information- and resource-sharing, and capacity-building among cancer health disparities researchers, trainees, outreach workers and organizations, with the key goal of advancing cancer health disparities research and training. Moffitt serves as the hub for GMaP Region 2, which includes more than 40 partner institutions in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and Puerto Rico.
Some of GMaP activities include:
- Trainee/Early Career Scientists Travel and Expert Grant Review Awards
- Cancer Health Disparities Research Course
- Collaborative Inter-institutional Research Pilot Funding
- Regional Communications about Current Research and Training Opportunities
