Viswanath Lab – Dr. Viswanath’s research group is interested in examining and defining the role of communication across the cancer continuum — from prevention and detection, to diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. The group has a particular interest in how inequalities in the distribution of communication resources and channels relate to health disparities. This website is a resource for researchers, students, and practitioners interested in health communication, particularly as it relates to cancer disparities.
Health Communication Core, Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center – The Health Communication Core (HCC) provides evidence-based communication services to assist investigators with study naming/branding, recruitment, retention, and intervention and education materials. Services include strategy planning, writing/editing, graphic design, logo development, website design, interactive media, outreach, social media, and usability testing. We work with researchers, clinicians, and others from Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center institutions, the National Cancer Institute, and other medical and research institutions in the US and internationally. HCC provides free initial consultations and budget proposals.
Center for Community Based Research, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – The Center for Community-Based Research is part of Population Sciences, a research group within Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Department of Medical Oncology. CCBR is unique among the Institute’s programs because it focuses on research with the community to study the most effective ways to prevent cancer. In addition, CCBR’s work is part of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Risk Reduction Program. CCBR is also the home of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Health Communication Core.
