Theater Outreach Program


The Community Network for Cancer Prevention works with local playwrights to develop culturally and linguistically appropriate full-length plays and monologues for the African American, Hispanic, and Vietnamese communities in the greater Houston/Harris County area.

The CNCP collaborates with community organizations to host plays for underserved populations in areas where there are high incidences of cancer.

The CNCP sponsors, several plays and monologues to raise awareness about cancer and educate about prevention. At all events, a guest doctor or highly trained health educator is present and participates in a Q & A session, so attendees have an opportunity to speak to a trained expert about cancer prevention.
