Extending our work across Nebraska

Since many cancers can be prevented through changes in lifestyle, and the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is dedicated to educating the public on the importance of cancer prevention and early detection. Cancer center staff and volunteers travel across the state to provide free cancer screenings and education for Nebraskans at events serving both rural and urban populations.

Nebraska Breast Health Navigation Program

This program is working to eliminate barriers for breast cancer survivors, using trained volunteers called Lay Patient Navigators who provide peer-to-peer support.

Community Outreach & Engagement

We aim to reduce overall cancer burden and eliminate cancer-related health disparities in Nebraska through collaboration with community organizations.

Support Groups

Many of our patients are in extremely challenging circumstances. Taking time to process your experiences with others can be a healthy part of your own healing journey.
