Minorities to Bear Brunt of Rise in U.S. Cancer Cases
Date:4/29/2009

disparities through increased awareness, better access to care, more oriented research, better recruitment of minorities in clinical trials, more workforce diversity, programs to increase access to care in underserved regions and to underserved populations and better coverage for people living with cancer.

"We have known for a long time that we would have an emerging group of aging baby boomers and that the population of minorities has increased. We also know that increasing problems related to unemployment, inadequate health insurance is a huge problem," Raghavan said. "Like global warming, this is not something we're going to be worrying about in fifty years. It's here. It's happening now and, if we neglect it, we will have a catastrophe in the future."
