Cancer Disparities

Mentors needed for CURE program

For the past nine years, DF/HCC has participated in the NCI Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) program. This program is designed to increase the number of underrepresented minorities engaged in basic, clinical, and population-based biomedical cancer research. We are continuing to ask DF/HCC members to serve as mentors to college and high school students who have an interest in cancer research.

As a mentor, you (or your designee) are responsible for providing a hands-on experience for your mentee in a cancer research environment. The 2011 summer program dates are 6/13 to 8/19/11. For additional information on what being a mentor involves and how to sign up, please contact Elizabeth Zdunich at ezdunich@partners.org. Visit the CURE website to learn more.
