Since 1987, National Minority Cancer Awareness Week (NMCAW) promotes increased awareness of prevention and treatment among those segments of the population at greater risks of developing cancer. This week’s emphasis gives physicians, nurses, health care professionals and researchers an opportunity to focus on high-risk populations and develop creative approaches to battling cancer problems unique to these communities. The American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society both endorsed NMCAW as a means of drawing attention to the cancer disparities among minorities and the poor. Also, the Center for Research on Minority Health (CRMH) in the Department of Health Disparities Research at UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has used this forum to acknowledge the outstanding work that is being done in the community by local organizations and individuals to eliminate health disparities. Thursday, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm April 22th.
