Houston AANCART best practices: from vision to synergy to reality.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The theme for the 2004 AANCART Academy, "Community Partnerships for Cancer Control: From Vision to Synergy to Reality", characterizes Best Practices for the Houston AANCART site. Researchers and community members share a common vision for addressing the cancer and health disparities that exist in our Asian community. They banded together synergistically to bring to reality the programs and projects that are enabling more Asian Americans to understand their risks for cancer, receive screening and education, and access treatment and survivorship support. Along the way, Houston AANCART was also able to conduct meaningful and relevant community-based participatory research and to train young Asian and other investigators in how to reach out to this community in a culturally sensitive and appropriate manner.
