African-American Women's Health and Social Issues

By Catherine Fisher Collins | Go to book overview

the impact of slavery on the development of gynecologic cancers warrants attention, as does the examination of economic and social variations in relation to historical contexts. Further, studies should be directed toward understanding a combination of biological and psychosocial processes that impact the development of cancer in African-American women. While there may be various studies under way, there remains a great task for investigators who wish to conduct research for African-American women.
