Community Outreach, Engagement, and Equity

Our Mission

Simmons’ Office of Community Outreach, Engagement, and Equity strives to help everyone in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex live cancer-free.

To accomplish our mission, we reach out to the community with:

In turn, we host community conversations, currently held virtually, so that you can tell us about your cancer concerns and shape cancer care for those you love.

Our Team

"Our goal is to lessen cancer’s impact on those in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, especially the overlooked and underserved. But we don’t see outreach as a one-way effort; we see it as a two-way relationship. We invite you to become a cancer educator in your neighborhood and partner with us in research that benefits everyone in our large, diverse community."
