Workshop is designed to allow participants to:

 

  • Network with community-based cancer-serving professionals.
  • Understand how socioeconomic status, determinants of health, and health disparities influence cancer outcomes
  • Consider the psychosocial health needs of cancer-affeccted individuals in socioeconomically disadvantaged populations
  • Evaluate the relevance of national, state and local goals and guidelines when providing cancer services to socioeconomically disadvantaged populations.
  • Review characteristics of evidence-based interventions that are geared towards achieving health equity in diverse communities at the individual, organizational and community levels.
  • Develop concrete action plans to reduce cancer health disparities among disadvantaged populations.
  • Apply for SESRCD capacity-building services, such as:
    •  Free evidence-based assistance from professional field experts (SESRCD Behavioral and Social Science Volunteers)
    • Participation in the interactive SESRCD online portal,
    • Mini-grant funding
Target Audience:
Workshop materials are geared towards professionals working as community partners, or for community-based organizations, that provide direct cancer-related services to socioeconomically disadvantaged populations.  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 change to interact, and established relationships with community-based cancer-serving organizations in the region.
