Memorial Sloan Kettering offers an array of programs designed for a wide audience of patients, their families, caregivers, and community members. These programs help to educate the public about cancer-related topics such as prevention, screening, and treatment. In addition to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's institutional initiatives, our physicians, nurses, and other staff members frequently volunteer their time and cancer expertise in partnership with other organizations in the community.

Our Office of Community Affairs also provides our local community members with up-to-date information about activities at Memorial Sloan Kettering that may be of interest.

Our most immediate community members reside in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. However, as a globally recognized, comprehensive center for cancer treatment, research, and training, we also maintain a broad view of community that encompasses the local area, the United States, and the world.

We welcome opportunities to hear from members of our community and to form partnerships with community organizations. To share your thoughts, e-mail us at communityaffairs@mskcc.org.
