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.

MCA, the outreach division of The University of Kansas Cancer Center, links member hospitals, medical professionals and their patients with KU Cancer Center research and services so that the latest cancer research and care can be accessed close to home. In fact, the motto of the MCA is More Options. 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 discoveries made in the lab at the University of Kansas to the MCA network of hospitals and health care organizations and enhance the quality and delivery of cancer care at all levels. KPPEPR (Kansas Patients and Providers Engaged in Prevention Research) is a practice-based research network that is also part of the MCA.

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, patient navigation support, communication materials, web resources, and continuing education programs. For the convenience of our affiliated medical professionals, the MCA provides many of these services at member locations, thanks to technology like Interactive Televideo (ITV).
