Project Cancer Education


Project Cancer Education (PCE) is a dynamic, hands-on program created by the OSUCCC – James to help elected officials and other community leaders experience firsthand the excitement and complexities of leading-edge cancer research.

Through interactive sessions, attendees assume the roles of researchers, physicians and patients — attending patient rounds, taking part in simulated exercises and engaging in actual patient case scenarios from diagnosis through survivorship.

Among the areas explored are:

  • Laboratory researchers’ role in cancer care
  • The relationship between research costs and government funding
  • The role of an academic medical center on the frontier of cancer research

Ultimately, PCE helps elected officials and other community leaders better understand the benefit of having a nationally designated comprehensive cancer center and it helps them more fully appreciate how their decisions, policies and actions affect the OSUCCC – James’ mission to eradicate cancer.
