Minorities and Cancer
Minorities and Cancer broadly surveys the problem of cancer in minority communities. Leading epidemiologists discuss cancer incidence and mortality in minority populations, including black Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, and Asian Americans. Major sections review cancer prevention and detection programs available to the private practice physician and the community, research findings on cancer in minority groups, and cancer treatment. The final chapters summarize the problem and its possible solutions as perceived by leaders at the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, the Office of Minority Health Affairs of the Department of Health and Human Services, and Meharry Medical College, a leading minority medical school in the United States.
