Cancer Health Equity NOW


The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement: "Better Outcomes for Everyone"

Mar 3, 2021

American Indian and Alaska Native (Indigenous) populations continue to face cancer health disparities. Misrepresentation in data and a health care system focused on illness rather than prevention are some of the major contributions to these cancer health disparities.

Kris Rhodes, MPH and Myra Parker, PhD, MPH joins us to highlight some of these issues and to discuss why building trust and relationships are essential in working with Indigenous communities in cancer prevention.
