Unfortunately, people from historically underserved communities may experience disproportionately higher rates of certain diseases and may have less access to the most advanced cancer treatments. Francesca Gany, MD, MS, has introduced an innovative paradigm for research to help eliminate these disparities. She is Chief of the Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities (IHCD) Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering. MSK'S IMMIGRANT HEALTH AND CANCER DISPARITIES SERVICE The IHCD Service addresses unequal access to cancer treatment and other healthcare services at the local, national, and global levels. Using a cross-disciplinary, community-engaged approach, Dr. Gany and her colleagues identify key areas of need and provide health education and other services to immigrants and other underserved groups. Like other MSK model programs, the IHCD helps set the standard for similar efforts in the United States and other countries. Under Dr. Gany 's leadership, it will continue to improve cancer prevention and care in disadvantaged communities thanks to strong support from our caring donors.
