The National Cancer Institute (NCI) launched a new initiative April 6 to find answers to the question of why certain minority populations face unequal burdens of cancer.
The "Special Populations Networks for Cancer Awareness Research and Training" initiative is intended to create relationships between research institutions and community-based programs to enhance minority enrollment in clinical trials, foster cancer awareness, and encourage the development of minority biomedical researchers.
