Cancer Surveillance and Access to Care in Rural America
Duration: approximately minutes
Rural populations face greater travel burdens to accessing cancer care and have higher rates of cancer incidence, delayed/late-stage cancer diagnosis, and mortality than their urban peers. In this webinar, speakers highlighted current research from the Rural and Minority Health Research Center (RMHRC) examining rural-urban differences in residential proximity to cancer care providers across the U.S. and discussed challenges and opportunities for investigating rural cancer disparities using population-based datasets. Presenters for this webinar included Drs. Jan Eberth, Peiyin Hung, and Whitney Zahnd from the RMHRC at the University of South Carolina.
