Moncrief Cancer Foundation commits $20 million over 10 years to establish community outreach programs focused on cancer prevention and survivorship. Dr. Keith Argenbright is appointed Medical Director of UT Southwestern’s Moncrief Cancer Resources.

Texas voters approve a $3 billion, 10-year initiative that establishes the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, an agency whose mission is to secure the state’s position as a leader in innovative research, development of new treatments, and cancer prevention.

Dr. Celette Sugg Skinner is recruited to lead Population Science and Cancer Control, a scientific program designed to partner with the community and local health systems to improve cancer prevention, screening, and other services, particularly in patients who lack ready access to a health care system.
