Description

The Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness, Research and Training (AANCART) is a cooperative agreement between the national Cancer Institute (NCI) and the University of California, Davis. AANCART seeks to build partnerships to increase cancer awareness, to promote greater accrual of Asian Americans in clinical studies, to increase training opportunities for Asian Americans and to develop pilot programs in four targeted regions: Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle. The overall mission of AANCART is to reduce cancer health disparities by conducting community-based participatory education, training, and research by, for, and with Asian Americans in Sacramento, CA (also serves as Headquarters); San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Seattle, WA; Honolulu, HI, and Boston, MA.
