Community-focused Activities

In your community

Massey’s signature community programs and outreach services are designed with the community in mind. Serving as a bridge with the community to build trust through meaningful partnerships, these activities support center-wide efforts to reduce the cancer burden across the catchment area.

Champs connect Massey investigators and the community to identify and inform research priorities. Volunteers across the catchment area are trained in the science of cancer, the importance of research and cancer prevention and communication techniques.
