This lecture will be the first of many conversations from researchers and health professionals based at NCCU, UNC, and NC A&T about the family of diseases we call Cancer. For this particular lecture, we will focus on some of the basic concepts and characteristics that define cancer and discuss why it is such a devastating problem for our society. Also, we will discuss why it seems to negatively plaque minority communities the most.

Learning Objectives

  • Define what “cancer” is and list some of the causes.
  • Describe what “health disparity” and “health equity” are.
  • Discuss why more things need to be done to improve healthcare for all people.
