Live Webinar
Cancer touches all of our lives. For many Native communities, fears of cancer risk from environmental sources beyond their control are common. Some researchers, usually unaware of Native community concerns, can harbor the perspective that Native communities could be fruitful populations for studying the genetic risks of cancer. This webinar will help both sides of this chasm understand the other's point of view, hopefully leading to more effective communications and priority setting.
