About Us

The Kentucky Cancer Program (KCP) is the state mandated cancer control program established by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1982. Administered jointly by the Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, and the Markey Cancer Center, University of Kentucky, KCP has thirteen offices located across the state. Cancer control specialists coordinate cancer prevention and early detection programs; patient and family services; professional education and training; and mobilize communities through coalitions and partnerships to address local cancer problems. The mission is to reduce cancer incidence and mortality through education, research, and service.

KCP has produced the Pathfinder for more than 25 years as a community service to Kentuckians who are seeking cancer prevention, screening, treatment, and support resources. For more information or assistance, contact a KCP regional office.
