Midwest Cancer Alliance

The Midwest Cancer Alliance, also known as MCA, is a membership-based organization that brings together cancer research, care and support professionals to advance the quality and reach of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivorship in the Heartland.

The MCA links The University of Kansas Cancer Center research and services with member hospitals, medical professionals and their patients so that the latest cancer research and care can be found close to home.

The University of Kansas Cancer Center has been selected for National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation. NCI designation enhances the long-standing relationship of the Cancer Center with the Midwest Cancer Alliance, providing opportunities to expand research and link new discoveries made in the lab at the University of Kansas to the MCA network of hospitals and health care organizations in an ongoing effort to enhance the quality and delivery of cancer care at all levels.

All MCA-member medical professionals have access to second opinion and consultation services with multi-disciplinary cancer experts, conferences and other networking events, outreach programs, communication materials, web resources, and continuing education programs. The MCA provides many of these services at member locations via technology like Interactive Televideo (ITV).
