UC Davis launches center to fight cancer disparities
The National Cancer Institute had awarded UC Davis Cancer Center $5.6 million to combat the disparity of cancer rates among Asian Americans. The Cancer Center will now be home to the National Center for Reducing Asian American Cancer Health Disparities, the only such national center. Work there will build on more than a decade of efforts by the Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness Research and Training (AANCART) to increase cancer awareness and build community-centered research to fight cancer issues among Asian Americans. Among the organizations involved in the ongoing work and the new National Center are UC Davis, UC San Francisco, Chinese Community Health Resource Center in San Francisco, Hmong Women's Heritage Association in Sacramento, UCLA, University of Hawaii and the University of Washington.
