Our goal is to facilitate community-wide initiatives for the purpose of research, education mobilization and planning. NBLIC seeks to maximize the opportunities for cancer prevention, early detection and treatment in communities of color. To develop relationships with other high risk communities who because of blue collar status, poverty or other factors, which contribute to increased risk to develop cancer, suffer an increased mortality rate. We strive to assure representation of those high risk communities of color in local, state and national forums in order to facilitate prioritization of prevention, health promotion and quality medical care. NBLIC will develop strategies that target and are tailored to people of color in the Philadelphia Community.
