Overview of Our Key Initiatives
Bridging Cancer Care in the U.S. and in Central & Eastern Europe
In the U.S., our Bridging Cancer Care™ initiative will be active in the states in the Southeast determined to have the highest lung cancer burden. Bridging Cancer Care will focus grantmaking on pilot projects that aim to reduce the burden of lung cancer among minority and underserved populations through innovative models of prevention, detection and education, and by helping those living with lung cancer to access and navigate cancer care and community-based support services.
In Central and Eastern Europe, the Foundation’s Bridging Cancer Care™ initiative is working with partners in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Russia to improve cancer nursing skills and to engage nurses to increase education and awareness and to improve cancer outcomes in their communities.
