Patients and their families can learn how to communicate their questions and concerns to health professionals, who to call when they need help, information, or resolution, how to navigate the UAB campus, learn about resources that provide support through the cancer journey, and how to manage side effects of cancer treatment while maintaining good nutrition for better health outcomes.
The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center is among the 40 cancer centers in the nation to meet the stringent criteria for the National Cancer Institute's comprehensive designation. The center is a leader in groundbreaking research, reducing cancer disparities and leading-edge patient care.
