Minority Cancer Awareness Resources
April is National Minority Health Month and National Minority Cancer Awareness Week was last week. Cancer affects different populations differently, and minority groups in the United States continue to bear a greater cancer burden than whites. Much of this difference is due to factors like poverty and lack of access to prevention/detection services and high-quality treatment, according to reports produced by the American Cancer Society. For instance, African Americans and Hispanics in the U.S. have higher poverty rates than whites and are less likely to have health insurance, making it harder for them to get the care they need.
