The Chicago Cancer Health Equity Collaborative (ChicagoCHEC) is hosting its annual community forum in September.
The 8th annual community forum, “Community Health Connections: Bridging Gaps in Cancer through Conversations,” will be held Friday, September 29, at the Arturo Velasquez Institute, 2800 S. Western Avenue in Chicago. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Discussion topics for the forum include gaps in cancer care, self-care for cancer caregivers, community resources and more.
ChicagoCHEC is a comprehensive partnership to advance cancer health equity that brings together the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), a federally designated Minority-Serving, Hispanic-Serving, and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution, and Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU), a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution, with the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
In the NCI-funded partnership, the institutions work collaboratively to increase the number of students and investigators from underrepresented populations engaged in cancer health disparities research.
