The Cancer Information Service

  • Janice A. Allen Chilton


Treatment, prevention, and early detection remain important factors in strategies to minimize the racial differences that exist in this country in cancer morbidity and mortality. The general agreement is that these differences exist and persist in minority communities not because of inherent racial differences, but because of other more complex reasons that include a lack of knowledge about cancer and the inaccessibility of accurate cancer information in these communities. There is, however, an information resource, the Cancer Information Service (CIS), that can provide the kind of cancer information that saves lives. It has proved to be a vital force in many cancer control efforts nationwide.
