American Indians and Alaska Natives: Resolving Disparate Cancer Outcomes.

07:00 EST 1st February 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "American Indians and Alaska Natives: Resolving Disparate Cancer Outcomes."

American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIANs) have been documented as a population with high rates of cancer mortality in comparison to other racial and ethnic groups in the United States. During a time when other populations in the United States are experiencing improvements in cancer outcomes, cancer disparities in AIANs persist. The disparities in cancer outcomes in this diverse population can be attributed to a complex constellation of factors, which include access-to-care, economic, medical, and individual barriers, and mistrust and disenfranchisement.
