Exploring Cancer

Exploring the Role of Race, Class, and Socioeconomics in the Underserved and the Underrepresented


Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of deaths in North Carolina. What causes Cancer? Why have we not cured Cancer yet? What are some of the myths that surround Cancer care? Why do people of color seem to develop and die from Cancer at rates much higher than the majority of the population?

If you are interested in learning the answers to one or more of these questions, you should consider viewing these engaging and stimulating, webinar series taught by cancer biologists, physicians, public health experts, and other cancer specialists from NCCU, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NC A&T.
