Funding Sources
GeorgiaCancerInfo.org was made possible through the generous financial support of several sponsors. While all members of Georgia CORE’s research network are offered the opportunity to be a sponsor, only select organizations have chosen to provide funding to support the development and dissemination of GeorgiaCancerInfo.org. Sponsors do not influence website content; however, they do derive exposure on the site through rotating profiles on the homepage as well as a logo and link to their website on the sponsor and partner page. Since sponsors do not influence site content and all network affiliates are offered the opportunity to sponsor GeorgiaCancerInfo.org, there is no conflict of interest.
