The University of Minnesota Cancer-Related Health Disparities Education and Career Development Program is a joint training program in the Medical School and the School of Public Health for Pre- and Post-doctoral Fellows committed to establishing careers in intervention research to reduce cancer-related disparities. This program, which began in September 2011 through a 5-year grant from the National Cancer Institute, will train researchers to develop and evaluate interventions to reduce cancer-related inequities among disadvantaged populations in both clinical and population settings, using a Community Based Participatory Research framework. The program also intends to enhance the diversity of the research workforce in this area by recruiting individuals from underrepresented/disadvantaged populations.
