The Network for Cancer Control Research Among American Indian and Alaska Native Populations

The Network for Cancer Control Research Among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Populations was established to increase awareness and understanding about cancer in native communities, provide training in cancer control research for AI/AN researchers, and improve communication between the Native and research communities to encourage research focused on issues that affect Native people. The network addressed comprehensive tribal cancer control issues through partnerships with tribal cancer centers, the Cancer Information Service, and the American Cancer Society.
