Humanosphere: Cancer prevention in the Americas is ‘social justice’ issue, experts say
Humanosphere journalist Lisa Nikolau discusses cancer prevention and treatment challenges in the Americas. She quotes Lourdes Baezconde-Garbanati, professor in preventive medicine and founder of the Center for Health Equity in the Americas (CenHealth), who urged “education, early screening, and better access to language- and culture-specific information” to improve cancer prevention and called these efforts “an issue of social justice” (11/2).
