Center for HOPE: Addressing Health Needs and Cancer Disparities Among Underserved Populations

In an effort to prevent cancer and improve health among underserved populations, the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah announced the opening of the Huntsman Center for Health Outcomes and Population Equity (HOPE) last month. The center aims to serve as a bridge between scientists and the community through collborations with government and community groups throughout the region. 

We spoke with David Wetter, PhD, director of the Center for HOPE and professor of population health sciences at the University of Utah, about how the center is addressing cancer disparities among underserved populations as well as different health needs among different groups of people within those populations.
