The Health Communications Core (HCC) provides service to research studies requiring targeted and tailored communications. This service helps optimize trial recruitment, adherence to protocols, and behavioral interventions for investigators conducting cancer prevention, cancer control, and cancer care delivery research. The HCC supports the UM Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMCCC) through the following aims:

  • Recommending communications and technological components to meet investigators’ intervention, recruitment, and retention needs
  • Designing, developing, deploying, and maintaining high-quality print, mobile device, web-based, or other communication channels and strategies with UMCCC investigators
