The Biology of Cancer Lecture: Presentations

August 18, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Biology of Cancer:
Exploring the Role of Race, Class, and Socioeconomics
in the Underserved and the Underrepresented

Behind cardiovascular disease, Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of deaths in the United States. What causes Cancer? Why have we not cured Cancer yet? What are some of the myths that surround Cancer care? Why do people of color seem to develop and die from Cancer at rates much higher than the majority of the population?

If you are interested in learning the answers to one or more of these questions, you should consider attending an engaging and stimulating, semester-long webinar series taught by cancer biologists, physicians, public health experts, and other cancer specialists from NCCU, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NC A&T. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to potentially hear from cancer survivors. These hour long webinars will be held during the Fall 2020 semester on Fridays at 11am. Come out and join us!
