Join us for the 14th AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorites and the Medically Underserved. This conference advances the understanding of, and ultimately helps to eliminate, the disparities that represent a major public health problem in our country. Reflecting this transdisciplinary field, professionals from academic, industry, government, and the community are brought together to promote the exchange of novel ideas, discuss the latest findings in the field, and stimulate the development of new research on cancer health disparities.


This conference is supported in part by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number R13CA239609. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.
