Several different informatics techniques will be presented.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe ways in which informatics can advance public health goals for cancer prevention and control. 2. List types of informatic technologies used in cancer prevention and control efforts. 3. Explain how informatic technologies function in a cancer prevention and control context.
