University of Wisconsin-Extension provides statewide access to university resources and research so the people of Wisconsin can learn, grow and succeed at all stages of life. UW-Extension carries out this tradition of the Wisconsin Idea – extending the boundaries of the university to the boundaries of the state – through its four divisions of continuing education, cooperative extension, business and entrepreneurship, and broadcast and media innovations.
Cancer Health Disparities Initiative (CHDI) of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center works with researchers, clinicians and communities across Wisconsin and beyond to reduce inequities in the burden of cancer. CHDI builds the capacity of UWCCC researchers to conduct research on cancer health disparities and cancer-related research with disparate populations. They conduct outreach, education, formative research and program evaluation activities with underserved communities. CHDI also provides training and education to UWCCC members, staff and trainees to enhance their ability to conduct cancer health disparities research and effective community engagement.
