In cooperation with the CDC Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, the Socioeconomic Status Related Cancer Disparities program (SESRCD), seeks to strengthen the capacity of community cancer-serving organizations and stakeholders to access, adopt and utilize evidence-/practice-based strategies to improve or initiate cancer prevention, early-detection and survivorship activities for socioeconomically disadvantaged populations. Based out of downtown Washington, DC, the SESRCD program is part of the American Psychological Association’s (APA) efforts to improve access and knowledge of evidence-based community behavioral health strategies in cancer public health.Participant note: Although higher-level researchers, scientists, clinicians and professionals are welcome to attend, they are likely to be familiar with much of the material presented. It is worth noting however, that this workshop serves as an excellent platform for networking and may provide researchers with a unique chance to interact with, and established relationships.Also, participants will need to provide their own transportation and federal guidelines do not allow us to provide meals and refreshments.
