The goal of the Carolina Cancer Association is to contribute to both the healthcare and cancer-oriented communities by promoting meaningful involvement in academia and volunteerism, spreading awareness about cancer and its extensive direct and indirect effects, and fundraising for national non-profits to make a sustainable impact in our community.
We serve as a platform that presents undergraduate students with opportunities to:
1) Immerse themselves in scientific and cancer-related research
2) Gain exposure to the medical field through volunteer positions at UNC Hospitals
3) Contribute to meaningful community service organizations, such as the American Cancer Society
