Promoting Immigrant Minority Equity in Cancer Research

Promoting Immigrant Minority Equity in Cancer Research

Increasing immigrant and minority participation in clinical trials will allow researchers to evaluate the effectiveness of new cancer treatments and diagnostic methods in a more diverse patient population.

Our Services

The Promoting Immigrant Minority Equity (PRIME) program uses a variety of tools and approaches to increase enrollment of minorities in cancer observational studies and clinical research, including:

  • Community and patient workshops and targeted online materials
  • Patient-centered support through multilingual access facilitators, modeled on the Integrated Cancer Care Action Network program, to facilitate recruitment and retention in breast cancer studies
  • Provider outreach, education, and support
  • Institutional Review Board education to identify and remove barriers to enrollment
