Engaging Black Men as Leaders in Cancer Research


Research indicates that African American men suffer worse health than any other racial group in the United States. Black men have the highest mortality for all cancers combined, yet they are underrepresented in research studies. Presented by the Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Department of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences and the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Health Equity and Community Engagement, “Engaging Black Men as Leaders and Partners in Cancer Research” examines ways to engage African American men in medical research in an attempt to reduce health disparities.
