American Association for Cancer Research hosts Science of Health Care Disparities Meeting
Date:1/6/2009

PREMIER INTERNATIONAL MEETING HIGHLIGHTS BREAKTHROUGH RESEARCH IN UNDERSTANDING GENETIC AND SOCIOECONOMIC DIFFERENCES CAREFREE, AZ FEBRUARY 3-6, 2009

What:

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 www.aacr.org . The AACR will be hosting daily press briefings, and information on these events will be available on January 26, 2009, via Newswise and Eurekalert.

More than 200 abstracts will be presented at the meeting, complementing an outstanding program of scientific and educational events.

Highlights:

  • How Hispanic women are responding to HPV awareness campaigns
  • Methods to increase enrollment in clinical trials among minority patients
  • Why the Barbershop technique may increase awareness among blacks
  • How many minorities are foregoing health care because of the cost?
  • Are rural patients less likely to be screened for cancer?
  • Genetic polymorphisms that increase prostate cancer and leukemia risk
