Identification of strategic priorities

In the next five years, Massey’s overarching focus will be to reduce cancer health disparities and improve survivorship for all, with particular emphasis on the following cancers — lung, breast, prostate, and gastrointestinal cancers, which demonstrate disproportionate incidence and mortality in key demographics across the catchment area. Massey is also working to address significant behavioral factors driving the cancer burden within the catchment area such as tobacco use and obesity control.

Lastly, Massey strives to meet the required expectations for National Cancer Institute (NCI) comprehensive status. This designation is bestowed upon the highest echelon of NCI-designated cancer centers that demonstrate leading transdisciplinary research and scientific impact across the cancer continuum.
