Contact us for a consultation to provide information and assistance on best approaches to recruit groups that have been historically underrepresented in cancer research and who experience significant health disparities in North Carolina.

These groups include but are not limited to: LGBTQ communities, people with disabilities, African Americans, rural populations, American Indians, Asian populations, Latinx groups, and those in the most vulnerable age categories: children and older adults.
