Community-Based Participatory Research

A vital part of our mission at the Cancer Prevention and Control Program is to create mutually beneficial collaborations with our community, especially when it comes to health issues that have the greatest impact on our local communities here in South Carolina. In these cooperative projects, both our researchers and members of diverse communities throughout our state contribute their unique expertise in working towards common public health goals. We establish these beneficial relationships through community-based participatory research, with two major ongoing projects exemplifying the success of this type of collaboration: the South Carolina Cancer Disparities Community Network and DIDACTIC.
