March 2014 Supplement of Cancer

The findings published in the March 2014 supplement of Cancer, provide an overview of the progress and the importance of the EMPaCT consortium and their combined work effort to change the course of disparities for cancer-related treatment for minorities. The five consortium institutions – University of Minnesota (lead institution); University of Alabama, Birmingham; John’s Hopkins University; MD Anderson Center; and University of California, Davis, represent a distinct US region with a National Cancer Institute (NCI) funded cancer center and a National Institute for Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) funded health disparities program.
