U of California Davis launches cancer health equity center 

Sacramento, Calif.-based UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center is launching the Center for Advancing Cancer Health Equity to address disparities in the region, it said last week. 

The new center will also promote and support the careers of women, people of color, and those from other underrepresented groups at UC Davis, according to the April 22 news release from the center.

"The ultimate goal is to achieve cancer health equity for all communities living in Central and Northern California," said Luis Carvajal-Carmona, PhD, founding director of the new center. "The concerted efforts of the Center for Advancing Cancer Health Equity will not only contribute to improved health outcomes in our underserved populations but will also result in a body of work that will influence cancer-related policy decisions at the county, state, and national levels."
