Innovations in Cancer Screening and Prevention: How to Lay the Groundwork for Health Equity

Wednesday, February 15,12p-1p CST

About the Webinar: 

Although cancer incidence and mortality overall are declining in all population groups in the United States, certain groups continue to be at an increased risk of developing or dying from particular cancers. Certain groups in the United States experience cancer disparities because they are more likely to encounter obstacles in getting health care. Because many different factors can influence cancer disparities, addressing them is not always simple or straightforward. Join us to learn more about these factors, the impact of innovation and developing a framework for health equity.

Learning Objectives: 

1)  Identify the factors that contribute to cancer mortality.

2) Analyze the impact of various innovations in care on the emergence of disparities.

3) Discuss how new screening modalities might affect disparities.

4) Develop a framework to strive for health equity within organizations, programs and communities.
