Hearts and Minds Dedicated to Improving Cancer Care.

 

Georgia CORE is a public-private partnership that connects cancer care providers, leaders, organizations, and advocates. Led by a Board of Directors of experts from cancer centers, hospitals and academic institutions, collaboration orchestrated by Georgia CORE improves access to personalized cancer care and support for patients, survivors, and caregivers.

In fact, connection and collaboration are at the core of everything we do. Georgia CORE builds and nurtures collaboration among people, organizations and institutions dedicated to improving cancer care in Georgia. Our statewide network is dedicated to generating creative, personalized resources. Because we are the only statewide organization working with such a vast array of groups, we are able to leverage public and private funding to provide greater impact and generate improved results.

One advantage of our collaborative efforts is being able to gather nearly all of Georgia’s resources and information related to cancer care in one place. In 2012, Georgia CORE created GeorgiaCancerInfo.org to catalog details on oncologists, clinical trials and treatment centers throughout the state, including resources and support services for survivors and caregivers, and best practices in survivorship care for oncology professionals.

As a result of the width, breadth and depth of our collaboration, Georgia CORE increases access to innovative cancer resources and research to improve quality of care for patients and quality of life for survivors. Our work ensures equitable distribution of programs and research to Georgia’s minority, rural and underserved populations across the state. 

We also raise awareness about survivorship issues, and educate and engage survivors to help them achieve their best possible quality of life. At the heart of these efforts is the Cancer Survivorship Connection, within GeorgiaCancerInfo.org, where an online library of resources and interactive tools provide support to survivors and anyone involved with their care.

Through partnerships with oncologists, researchers, nurses, educators, navigators and survivors, Georgia CORE leads impactful programs and clinical trials Funding from the National Cancer Institute, Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute, Georgia Department of Public Health, Georgia Department of Community Health, Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology and others provides services, support, education and care in every corner of the state. Since the creation of our research network and statewide promotion of clinical trials, Georgia CORE has contributed to a seven-fold increase in the number of clinical trials in Georgia.

And, Georgia’s cancer mortality rate has declined by 15% since 2000, when the first tobacco funds were appropriated for cancer.

But we must do more, which is why Georgia CORE leads statewide advocacy efforts to promote equity in cancer care, funding and policy. We unify the Georgia Cancer Control Consortium’s (GC3) 88 members and work together with the State on a cancer control plan with measurable goals and results.
