Lessons from an AcademicCommunity Partnership: UNC-Chapel Hill and Lumbee Tribe Promoting Colorectal
This event is in the past.
Thomas Biron, member of Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, will moderate the third session of
Reclaiming Indigenous Health, featuring Leah Frerichs of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Ronny Antonio Bell of Wake Forest University and the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina.
Together they will lead a discussion focusing on the experience of addressing colorectal cancer screening in under-served populations and on building strong partnerships with North Carolina tribal partners.
The event will also give insights into a patient-centered, culturally-appropriate strategy to increase colorectal cancer screening among American Indian groups. Drs. Bell and Frerichs will discuss the specific considerations when engaging tribal members in research, especially as it relates to Institutional Review Boards and research ethics.
This event is presented by the Office of Cancer Health Equity and Community Engagement at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
