May's cyber-seminar explored the use statistical modeling to improve our understanding of cancer control interventions in prevention, screening, and treatment and their effects on population trends in incidence and mortality. This month’s cyber-seminar included a panel of the leaders from the five CISNET Coordinating Centers, each with a focus on a specific cancer site (Breast, Colorectal, Esophageal, Lung and Prostate), as well as programmatic leaders from the NCI and CDC. All provided great examples of the work the CISNET modelers are doing as well as potential ways modelers and public health practitioners might engage with one another to improve their programs and public health impact.
Now its your turn to share. Ask questions of our speakers or share your stories and experiences with modeling; propose potential questions for future modeling; and discuss how your organization or community might benefit from modeling. If you are interested in submitting a question for colloboration you can find and download the form at the bottom of: https://researchtoreality.cancer.gov/node/200.
