Brought to you by the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement. We invite you to use the resources to learn about cancer, awareness, prevention, and more through our videos, activities, resources, and guides. There's something for the whole family!

Who We Are: We are the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement at the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. We go into the community to help people across Minnesota learn about cancer so that they know how they can prevent cancer, get screenings, and have resources to help them.

Want to get involved? Let us know if you'd like us to work with your community, business, or school by reaching out to us at
