Mission Statement

Last Reviewed: June 19, 2023

OncoLink® is a leading provider of oncology education. We support patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers by providing up-to-date, evidence-based cancer education that addresses needs from risk assessment through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. At the heart of our mission is providing this education free of charge to enable patients and caregivers to make educated treatment decisions and to become active participants in their care.

As frontline healthcare providers, we have seen the impacts of social determinants of health and racial disparities on usage and access to healthcare. Social determinants of health include things like socioeconomic status, education, housing, neighborhoods, job opportunities, and the availability of social support networks. We know that practical things such as a lack of insurance, and basic human needs like childcare, transportation, elder care, and groceries can all impact health in many ways. This knowledge has helped us create content to help you advocate for yourself, address these disparities, and identify how to get help.

The OncoLink® team is committed to anti-racism, equity, and inclusion.

  • We work to ensure that all people with cancer, their care partners, and healthcare providers have access to the cancer information and education that they need.
  • Our goal is to provide high-quality, patient and family-centered cancer information for all, irrespective of a user’s background or culture.
  • We are committed to partnering with others in the community to tackle barriers to achieving equitable cancer screening, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, palliative, and end-of-life care.
