US, European cancer educators gather in Alabama for meeting
Date:10/10/2007

rview of approaches for disseminating information and educating teens, young adults, parents and their physicians about vaccines to prevent infection from human papillomavirus, or HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer.

  • A symposium on the use of smokeless tobacco products and their health effects on patients compared to the effects of smoking.

  • A how-to workshop teaching cultural competency in palliative and end-of-life care for those who work with cancer patients and survivors.

Sharing ideas about health disparities and minority cancer education is crucial to reducing unequal burdens in prevention and medical care, said C. Michael Brooks, Ed.D., a professor in UABs School of Health Professions and the local arrangements for AACEs 2007 annual meeting.

For instance, data show that many racial and ethnic minorities and medically underserved groups are more likely to develop cancer and die from the disease than the general U.S. population. Research also shows that uninsured patients are more likely to be diagnosed and treated for cancer at late stages of disease, and that theyre more likely to receive less-than-optimal care.

More than anything else these disparate numbers are issues that cancer educators and health care leaders nationwide must confront, and hopefully reverse, Brooks said.

In addition to workshops, symposia, poster sessions and podium presentations, the conference will include a ceremony to announce 2007 Margaret Hay Edwards Achievement Medal recipient. The award was established in 1986 to honor an individual who has made outstanding national or international contributions to cancer education.

AACE conferees will also be encouraged to participate in the 2007 Komen Race for the Cure 5K run and fitness walk on Saturday morning at Birminghams Linn Park.
