The National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) is a campus-wide multidisciplinary matrix organization whose goal is to promote and enhance cancer-relevant research and patient care at UC Irvine. The CFCCC provides research resources to its ~175 members engaged in research and offers multidisciplinary cancer care to its patients. Under general supervision, the Senior Community Health Program Representative independently conducts community-based cancer education activities with little or no assigned supervisory responsibility as part of the CFCCC?s Community Outreach and Engagement office. The incumbent is responsible for disseminating culturally appropriate, evidence-based cancer information that is tailored to the specific needs of populations within the CFCCC?s catchment area. The goals of the CFCCC?s community education component are to 1) enhance NCI-supported cancer health disparities (CHD) research efforts through culturally tailored education/outreach to underserved communities, including recruitment to clinical trials; 2) enhance the dissemination of culturally appropriate, evidence-based cancer information to underserved communities; and 3) adapt, implement, and assess culturally tailored education/outreach activities that address local and regional cancer health disparity issues. The incumbent is responsible for planning, conducting and assessing the impacts of community cancer education and outreach to underserved communities, with a special emphasis on Latino and Asian American populations. The incumbent will also strengthen partnerships and collaborations with key academic, research, community and regional partners to effectively engage with and reach underserved communities with tailored information. The incumbent will also assist community members in addressing their cancer-related health needs; make appropriate referrals in cases of complex problems; prepare and disseminate information regarding cancer-specific programs and services to appropriate community groups; work with community groups to identify cancer-related needs and communicate those needs to professional personnel; assist in organizing and providing education services to the community; and develop and maintain a complete file of referral resources and refer clients to other medical, social service, or community agencies as required.
