Special Spotlight: Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month
This month, CRCHD pays tribute to the generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have enriched American history and are instrumental in its future.
CRCHD also recognizes CNPC grantees, Drs. Sora Park Tanjasiri, and Grace Ma, for their contributions and achievements in research, prevention and training initiatives that address cancer health disparities among Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders (AAPIs).
Cancer is the leading cause of death in the Asian American community. Among the cancers that specifically effect women, cervical cancer has a profound impact. Please view the following video, designed to raise awareness of the disparity created by cervical cancer in this population.
May is also National Cancer Research Month. Please read through this special spotlight on Dr. Harold Moses, a CRCHD grantee and recent recipient of the 10th Annual Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cancer Research by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).
