Special Spotlight: Black History and Cancer Prevention Awareness Month
During the month of February, CRCHD observes Black History and Cancer Prevention Awareness Month by recognizing the contributions and achievements of African Americans in the cancer research field, as well as the valuable efforts being focused on prevention both NCI and NIH-wide.
Despite recent declines in cancer death rates among African Americans and advances in cancer prevention and treatment, African Americans continue to experience a disproportionately higher share of the cancer burden. Similarly sobering, cancer prevention is only effective if the initiative is taken to promote health behavior patterns and practices in one's own lifestyle.
