East Harlem Partnership for Cancer Awareness

The objective of the East Harlem Partnership for Cancer Awareness was to reduce barriers to screening among medically underserved urban minorities by identifying those barriers, developing and implementing educational programs and materials, and providing training in culturally appropriate cancer outreach and communication. The project utilized the Mount Sinai postdoctoral educational curriculum, research seminars, grant preparation workshops, and tutorials with senior faculty to develop collaborative research projects conducted by community partners and minority investigators.
