Population Sciences Research Program Retreat 2014

Milwaukee, WI US
May 2, 2014

The focus of the 2014 Population Sciences research program retreat is cancer outcomes, disparities, prevention, and control.  There are significant outcomes projects and registry resources in the Population Science program that can be used to identify opportunities to impact the catchment area for all Cancer Center research programs and members. 

Our catchment area is home to most of Wisconsin’s minority and underserved populations, and there are significant cancer disparities affecting these communities.  Addressing these needs and disparities should be a major focus for faculty at MCW. 

The Population Sciences program is leading the Cancer Center’s efforts to engage with faculty and clinicians to drive research that impacts our catchment area.  There are significant outcomes projects and registry resources in the Population Science program that can be used to identify opportunities to impact the catchment area for all Cancer Center research programs and members.
