Welcome to GMaP Region 2


The Geographic Management of Cancer Health Disparities Program (GMaP) initiated in 2009, is a national program funded by the National Cancer Institute's Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) designed to enhance capacity in the areas of disparities research; recruitment and career/professional development of underrepresented investigators, trainees, and students; communication and dissemination; and evaluation, as part of building region-based “hubs” for the support and efficient management of cancer health disparities (CHD) research, training, and outreach. The regional GMaP hubs are unique in that each brings together CHD investigators, underrepresented trainees and students, community health educators, and community members to work together to:

  • Share information, resources, and tools
  • Enhance access to underrepresented investigators, trainees/students and foster career development linkages
  • Strengthen region-based community education and outreach efforts that contribute to achieving GMaP goals


GMaP Region 2 (Formerly Region 3)

Moffitt Cancer Center serves as the hub for GMaP Region 2, which includes more than 40 partner institutions in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and Puerto Rico.


GMaP Region 2 activities include:

  • Trainee/Early Career Scientists Travel and Expert Grant Review Awards
  • Cancer Health Disparities Research Course
  • Collaborative Inter-institutional Research Pilot Funding
