*Patient education programs: programs are provided on a wide range of topics: cancer signs & diagnosis, family support, genetic counseling, financial/insurance issues, legal counseling, support groups, survivorship.
*Medical education (CME's) for New Mexican physicians (from all counties) to increase their knowledge and understanding for early diagnosis and new treatments for cancer. To use technology to educate caregivers and physicians in rural areas of New Mexico.
