2012 Science of Global Prostate Cancer Disparities Conference
The Global Burden of Prostate Cancer: Economic, Clinical and Humanistic Outcomes
November 1-4, 2012
Nassau, The Bahamas
Prostate cancer continues to be a major public health problem in both industrialized (developed) and developing countries worldwide. While significant progress has been made in understanding the genetics, behavioral and environmental risk factors for prostate cancer, there is limited progress in closing the prostate cancer disparity gap for black men within and outside the US. The Biennial Science of Global Prostate Cancer Disparities conference is an international conference organized to address the global public health problem of prostate cancer among black men.
The goals of this conference are to:  Provide opportunities for mutual learning, knowledge transfer, and collaborations among prostate cancer scientists, clinicians, survivors and advocates;  Promote trans-disciplinary and multidisciplinary prostate cancer research globally;  Facilitate networking among individuals involved in all aspects of prostate cancer control, education and research in black men;  Facilitate the development of a global community of practice to address common challenges in prostate cancer, including prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship; and  Contribute to a global impact against prostate cancer through research, training, education, and advocacy programs for low-resource countries.
