A consortium of 17 cancer centers in the United States, including the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB, have come together to better understand the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in delaying cancer detection, care, and prevention.

The cancer centers are working together with the National Cancer Institute on the impact of the pandemic on the continuum of cancer care, from prevention to survivorship. This work will further examine whether differences in demographics affect cancer prevention and control, cancer management, and survivorship during the pandemic.

In addition to the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB, which is the coordinating site, participating cancer centers are: the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute (Michigan); the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center; Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center (Iowa); University of Colorado Cancer Center; Stephenson Cancer Center (Oklahoma); UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center (California); Oregon Health & Science University – Knight Cancer Institute; Fred Hutchinson/University of Washington Cancer Consortium; University of Virginia Cancer Center; Huntsman Cancer Institute (Utah); Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (Tennessee); Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (Florida); Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center/Washington University School of Medicine (Missouri); Markey Cancer Center (Kentucky); the University of Kansas Cancer Center and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
