About Us

The Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center works to identify the causes of health and cancer disparities among underserved populations and to develop solutions to alleviate them. We use a multidisciplinary, community-engaged approach to understand and address disparities at the local, national, and global levels. We conduct research, provide services to people in need, and train others to recognize and address these issues. We are also working to develop a research infrastructure that enables and encourages the equitable participation of the underserved in clinical trials and other research activities.

The Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service uses evidence-based, culturally responsive approaches to enhance the quality of service for underserved populations. We consider socioeconomic and linguistic factors in everything we do. The services we provide are relevant for all phases of cancer care, including education, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and the end of life.

Through our training programs we are developing a cadre of well-trained practitioners and scientists who are representative of the populations we serve. Finally, we are evaluating the impact of these integrated efforts on outcomes across diverse populations.
