Two of the three studies currently being funded by the Florida-California CaRE2 Health Equity Center focus on pancreatic cancer health disparities. As such, we are honored to have the resources and expertise available to share with you in observance of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month this November.
First, on November 24 at 2:00 pm EST, we have the pleasure of hearing from on of our Program Steering Committee members, who is happens to be one of the leading innovators in addressing pancreatic cancer disparities, Antonio T. Baines, PhD. Dr. Baines is an Associate Professor at the North Carolina Central University Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, with a joint appointment at the Julius L. Chambers Biomedical/Biotechnology Institute, as well as an Adjunct Associate Professorship in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Dr. Baines leads a laboratory dedicated to identifying molecular targets involved in the development of pancreatic cancer cells, exploring the various forces that impact the biology of cancer and health disparities. For the CaRE2 Monthly Webinar he will discuss, “The Investigation of Oncogenic Signaling Pathways as Potential Drug Targets in Pancreatic Cancer.” You can register for this webinar here.
Next, on November 30 at 5:30 pm EST, we will hold a virtual Community Health Education Forum with clinicians and researchers from the CaRE2 Health Equity Center to talk about risk factors, prevention, treatment options, survivorship and how research can help eliminate disparities in those areas of care. You can register for this event here.
Lastly, all of our CaRE2 Health Equity Center pancreatic cancer clinicians and researchers will be doing a Twitter Takeover of the CaRE2 Health Equity Center account (@care2hec) on December 7 at 2:30 pm EST to answer all your questions about pancreatic cancer! No registration is necessary—just log on and direct your questions to @care2hec using the event hashtags in the flyer to engage.
