Cancer-related disparities account for the significant differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, death and survivorship and burden faced by certain populations.  The comprehensive cancer control movement provides a framework for collaborative efforts to reduce the burden of cancer in those underserved.  Through the work of these coalitions and the field of comprehensive cancer control, cancer-related disparities are being addressed today more aggressively than ever before through multi-level partnerships and policy initiatives.

In our April cyber-seminar, we will highlight the work of comprehensive cancer coalitions in addressing health disparities.  Our distinguished panel will discuss how cancer coalitions in the state, tribes and territories work with their members, universities and research centers to deliver evidence-based programs to communities most in need.   

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the role of the comprehensive cancer control movement in redressing cancer-related disparities.
  • Identify how the universities and research centers partner with comprehensive cancer control coalitions to deliver evidence-based cancer control interventions in the community
  • Discuss how a tribal cancer coalition implements evidence-based programs to redress cancer health disparities in their community.
