MPHS 8800 - Introduction to Cancer Prevention and Control



Cancer is the second leading cause of death in this country, making its prevention and control important in public health practice. This urgency is exacerbated by the existence of racial/ethical disparities in cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Using an integrative, collaborative, and translational approach, this course is designed to examine concepts, methods, issues, and applications related to cancer risk reduction. Students will gain access to broad perspective of scientific and public health practices. The spectrum of research and practices including diet and diet-related lifestyle factors (such as weigh and physical activity) and tobacco (including the prevention/cessation), will be studied in detail.
