Abstract

The Center for Immigrant Health (CIH), in conjunction with the NYU Cancer Institute of the NYU School of Medicine has established a Cancer Awareness Network for Immigrant Minority Populations (CANIMP). This project focuses on building bridges between immigrant communities and cancer researchers in the areas of lung, prostate, breast and cervical cancers. The National Cancer Institute initially funded CANIMP as a special populations network to respond to the disparities in utilization and participation of immigrants and minorities in cancer prevention, detection and treatment services.
