Advisory Councils

Community Advisory Council

The Duke Cancer Institute’s Community Advisory Council (CAC) provides a platform for meaningful, intentional, and bi-directional relationships between communities in our catchment area and the DCI. Members represent diverse perspectives and geographic areas within our catchment area and provide an opportunity to build long-lasting connections that foster trust, inclusivity, transparency and openness. The CAC partners with DCI researchers to understand the cancer health needs in our catchment area, help foster trust with our local communities, collaborate on research studies, raise awareness through cancer education, early detection and outreach events, and partner in dissemination of results to various communities.

COEE Steering Committee

The DCI COEE steering committee, made up of experts across patient, community, and scientific groups, serves as an advisory board to the COEE program. The steering committee ensures that we actively engage multiple perspectives across DCI to reduce the burden of cancer in our community and beyond, and achieve health equity. The Steering Committee meets quarterly with the COEE program leadership.
