The 2012 AACR Cancer Health Disparities conference was the fifth in this series of conferences that addressed new research in cancer health disparities. The program featured all levels of basic, population, clinical and transdisciplinary research related to cancer and brought together physicians, scientists, health professionals and health care leaders working in a variety of disciplines to discuss the latest findings in their fields, to foster collaborative interdisciplinary interactions and partnerships, and to stimulate the development of new research in cancer health disparities.
