The AACR Science of Cancer Health Disparities conferences advance the understanding of, and ultimately help to eliminate, the disparities that represent a major public health problem in our country. Reflecting this transdisciplinary field, professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community are brought together to promote the exchange of novel ideas, discuss the latest findings in the field, and stimulate the development of new research on cancer health disparities.
