The AACR Cancer Health Disparities conferences are recognized as major gatherings that advance the understanding and, ultimately, help to eliminate the disparities in cancer that represent a major public health problem in our country. By promoting the exchange of novel ideas and information between a wide range of professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community, these conferences harness the potential and maximize the many opportunities for bringing research on health disparities from bench to bedside or community, and back again. The goals of these conferences have been to bring together scientists and other professionals working in a variety of disciplines to discuss the latest findings in the field and to stimulate the development of new research in cancer health disparities. Make plans now to join us in Atlanta for this exciting program.
