Special Spotlight: Caribbean American Heritage Month
This country's greatness lies in its diversity, and in honor of Caribbean American Heritage Month, CRCHD pays tribute to Caribbean immigrants, who have been contributing to the enrichment of American society since its founding.
This month, CRCHD spotlights grantee Dr. Erin Kobetz-Kerman, Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, for her research contributions addressing cancer health disparities among Haitian Americans in the U.S.
In Little Haiti, the neighborhood in which Miami's Haitian community resides and the largest enclave of Haitian settlers in the U.S., Haitian women are disproportionately affected by cervical cancer incidence and mortality. The incidence of cervical cancer is roughly four times higher (38 per 100,000) than that of black women (9 per 100,000) in the Miami metropolitan area.
In the video below, Dr. Erin Kobnetz-Kerman talks about her research efforts to reduce cervical cancer health disparities among Haitian Americans.
In our continuing efforts to acknowledge the great diversity of this nation, CRCHD is also spotlighting LGBT Pride Month during June. Go to The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding to learn more.
