Abstract:

It is increasingly recognized that exposures occurring at multiple levels, from neighborhoods to institutions to individuals, work independently and jointly to impact cancer health disparities. This presentation highlights our research team’s ongoing efforts and approaches taken to address the role of multilevel exposures in cancer health disparities, and discusses challenges and opportunities in this area.
