About the Event

In this installment of Community Engagement and Health Equity Seminar Series, Navkiran “Kiran” Shokar, M.D., MPH, presents “Cancer Prevention Early Detection: The Role of Community-Engaged Approaches in Achieving Health Equity.” Shokar is chair of the Department of Population Health, professor of population health, and associate dean of community affairs at Dell Medical School.

This presentation will review current challenges and opportunities in addressing disparities in cancer prevention and early detection, briefly review specific cancer epidemiological data and describe the outcomes of three community-based cancer prevention and early detection programs. It will be followed by a discussion of the community-engaged approaches that helped to maximize the effectiveness of these programs and how they are eminently transferable to interventions targeting different diseases, conditions and populations.

This event is open to anyone who is interested: clinicians, public health professionals, community leaders, researchers, educators, medical students and representatives from community-based organizations.
