Initiative to Eliminate Cancer Disparities

The Initiative to Eliminate Cancer Disparities (IECD) connects across all seven DF/HCC member institutions to advance DF/HCC’s commitment to reducing cancer disparities. The IECD has many facets, but one primary goal — to eliminate racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in cancer prevention, outcomes, care, and survivorship.
