ASIAN STAKEHOLDERS TO CREATING A SHARED UNDERSTANDING OF CANCER RISK
HOPE Clinic has partnered with MD Anderson and other community stakeholders to help address the unusual cancer burden in Asian Americans through patient-centered outcomes research. The risk among Asian American is unique as they have proportionally higher rates of cancer from infectious origins.
As witnessed in many other ethnic groups, prevention, screening and behavior change may reduce cancer risk. This project will focus on reducing cancer disparities among the Asian American population through community-based participatory research, needs assessment research and further implementation and dissemination of findings through town halls and summits. These preliminary findings will prioritize interest in cancer prevention interventions and concerns about cancer risk.
