Cyber-Seminar: Cancer Risk Communication Strategies for Underserved Populations

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013, 2:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m. EST

Adhering to some basic principles for presenting risk information to patients and individuals can improve understanding. However, different risk communication methods may be needed for individuals based on culture, literacy/numeracy, and other factors.  Join us February 26th as we explore the use of storytelling and other strategies for risk communication in culturally diverse and underserved populations.    

February’s cyber-seminar will feature Drs. Angela Fagerlin and Melany Cueva.  Dr. Fagerlin, Co-director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine and Associate Professor at the University of Michigan as well as a research scientist got VA Ann Arbor Center for Clinical Management Research, will provide an overview of risk communication strategies and research and how factors such as cultural competency and literacy/numeracy impact these strategies.  Dr. Cueva will share how she and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium have utilized storytelling and narratives as a strategy to educate the tribal community about cancer risk, prevention, and survival.  Both presentations will provide practical examples of how your organization might apply this research and these approaches in your own community.
