Increasing Access to Clinical and Educational Studies (ACES)

The Increasing Access to Clinical and Educational Studies (ACES) project established a cancer education and research network that linked cancer researchers, community health care leaders, community-based nurses, community-based primary care practices, and cooperative oncology groups to expand a cancer research partnership between the Thomas Jefferson University's Kimmel Cancer Center and Philadelphia community health care leaders. The project focused on providing cancer control education through African-American churches and conducting community-based cancer prevention and control research.
