The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is committed to ending cancer as we know it. Key to that mission is ensuring that all the advancements made in the clinic and research labs reach everyone. How do we increase access to cancer screenings and other early detection efforts? How can we best listen to and engage underserved populations on what they need most — and what barriers they face? Healing Within Reach is a documentary-style short film that focuses on the life-saving importance of equity and access in cancer prevention and care.
