CRCHD Integrated Networks
Through NCI-supported networks, CRCHD strategically enhances the integration and dissemination of diversity training, women’s health, and sexual and gender minority efforts across NCI, the scientific community, and underserved communities experiencing disparities.
By creating linkages across the country, CRCHD is able to more efficiently identify and leverage opportunities within NCI-supported and other programs to address unmet needs in cancer and cancer health disparities research.
CRCHD currently supports two national networks, the Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP) and the National Outreach Network (NON), as well as the Connecting Underrepresented Populations to Clinical Trials (CUSP2CT) Program and Screen to Save: NCI Colorectal Cancer Outreach and Screening Initiative (Screen to Save).
Connecting Underrepresented Populations to Clinical Trials
CUSP2CT will implement and evaluate multilevel and culturally tailored outreach and education interventions with the primary goal of increasing referral and ultimately, accrual of underrepresented racial/ethnic (R/E) minority populations, to NCI-supported clinical trials (CTs).

Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program
GMaP is a seven-region network that fosters collaboration, resource-sharing, and capacity-building among cancer health disparities researchers, trainees, community health educators, and organizations.

National Outreach Network
NON supports more than 50 community health educators at 38 NCI-Designated Cancer Centers who serve as critical links between disparities researchers and racially and ethnically diverse and rural communities.
