Abstract

The Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness, Research, and Training (AANCART) is dedicated to increasing cancer awareness, conducting research, and providing training to reduce the burden of cancer among Asian Americans. It is comprised of seven regions around the country where approximately one-third of Asian Americans in the United States reside. The Fifth Asian American Cancer Control Academy, which was held in Sacramento in October 2004, was the final Academy to be held during the initial 5-year AANCART project period. At the academy, various speakers addressed the national perspective on reducing and controlling the disparate burden of cancer borne by the ethnic and medically underserved communities of our country and cancer control in Asian-American communities.
