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 racial disparities and social determinants of health. Social determinants of health include things like socioeconomic status, education, housing, neighborhoods, job opportunities, the availability of social support networks, and how these impact our health and access to health care. We know that people of color are diagnosed with cancer later. We know these late diagnoses impact survivorship. We know about the lack of insurance, and of basic human needs like childcare, transportation, elder care, and groceries. Our knowledge has helped us create content and tools to help you address these disparities and identify how to get help.
We are committed to supporting black and brown cancer patients, your caregivers, your families, and your providers.
