Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Although cancer death rates are declining in the US, cancer remains a major public health issue, especially in risk populations where this decline is not being observed. This session provides insight into reaching at-risk populations for screening and other preventive services.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe need for cancer screening and prevention programs that target risk populations. 2. Identify strategies to successfully reach populations at greatest risk for cancer morbidity and mortality.
