Held in Atlanta the gathering provided rich networking opportunities and reinforced our commitment to diversifying the cancer research pipeline.
Beginning Oct. 12, American Cancer Society research grantees, interns, and partners from our Center for Diversity in Cancer Research Training (DICR) came together to share more about their work addressing health disparities, discussing research around the role of the social determinants of health, and ongoing opportunities for early-career researchers from diverse communities. This annual meeting provides rich networking opportunities for DICR participants and helps reinforce the ACS commitment to diversifying the cancer research pipeline. We are thankful to our partners, grantees, fellows, and community of supporters who help make this initiative successful!
Training programs that bring more diversity into cancer research help the ACS build capacity toward our mission to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
