American Association for Cancer Research hosts Science of Health Care Disparities Meeting



Although racial and ethnic differences in treatment and outcomes among cancer patients are well known, little is understood about the underlying causes and what can be done to solve a seemingly intractable problem. The American Association for Cancer Research is hosting a collaboration of scientists who are working to understand what can be done to address this situation.

To help you take advantage of the meeting's scientific abstracts and related activities, the program schedule is available online at . The AACR will be hosting daily press briefings, and information on these events will be available on January 26, 2009, via Newswise and Eurekalert.
