The Native American Network strives to:
- increase the number of Native-American researchers, scientists, and medical students involved in cancer control activities in Native-American communities;
- develop curricula and mentor students in the Native Researchers' Cancer Control Training Program; and
- convene national conferences on "Cancer in Indian Country".
For more information, visit An Update on Cancer in American Indians and Alaska Natives, 1999-2004 on the SEER website. Although this supplement was compiled a number of years ago, many of the points and issues it covers remain relevant for American Indian/Alaska Native people.
NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) is supporting Intervention Research to Improve Native American Health (IRINAH).
