Significant progress has been made in the identification of cancer health disparities in the United States, and areas for improvement, particularly among Black and Hispanic populations. In this Special Issue of Cancers, we aim to highlight advances in research that sheds light on overlooked cancer health disparities or demonstrates solutions to overcoming these challenges to equitable cancer care. We are pleased to invite you to submit your unpublished research on your field of cancer disparities. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. The issue will highlight novel research focused on underappreciated cancer disparities among populations from racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender, or age (pediatric, AYA, elderly) minority populations, as well as those disproportionately impacted by structural and social determinants of health. The scope of the issue will cover any unpublished and novel cancer disparities research including but not limited to clinical trials, interventional studies, observational studies, methodological research, reviews, and perspectives. Topics may also include patient centric disparities including financial toxicity and patient reported outcomes. Research emphasizing the importance of data disaggregation and assessment of intersectionality is encouraged.
We look forward to receiving your contributions,
Dr. Kekoa Taparra
Dr. Manali I. Patel
Prof. Dr. Scarlett Lin Gomez
