Office of Outreach and Health Disparities

The Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine established The Office of Outreach and Health Disparities to ensure that the large, diverse and underserved population of Houston/Harris County receives the latest information about cancer prevention and treatment. The primary goal is to increase community-level awareness of cancer and cancer screening.

The OOHD believes outreach and involvement is vital to the community so that information can be shared about cancer treatment and prevention. It has created successful events, programs and educational tools for a range of audiences.

Successful initiatives include partnering with students from the Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, where students designed and decorated Toni the Healthy Eating Cart to participate in the Art Car Parade. OOHD also provides education on healthy eating, putting on theater performances intended to educate on cancer prevention and treatment, and promoting user-friendly educational resources.

Cancer Prevention, Screening, and Treatment Resources

The OOHD strives to be an educational resource for cancer screening, awareness, and treatment decisions. We offer interactive multimedia programs to explore cancer screening and treatment decisions, free printable educational activities to increase awareness about cancer prevention among school-aged children, and more.
