Program Presents at National Cancer Disparities Conference

Oct. 6, 2010 – Researchers and staff members of Siteman Cancer Center's Program for the Elimination of Cancer Disparities (PECaD) attended the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Cancer Disparities Conference in Miami Sept. 30 to Oct. 3 to present program findings and research activities.

PECaD faculty and staff members submitted abstracts to the conference abstract review committee. After review, two abstracts were accepted as poster presentations. One presentation focused on the Clinical Studies Outreach Program at Siteman. The other focused on the PECaD’s collaboration with the Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers location in north St. Louis County that supports access to quality breast cancer care through patient navigation. A staff member from the People’s Health Centers location attended the conference to present along with PECaD staff members.
