COMPPARE Principal Investigator Nancy Price Mendenhall, MD, FACR, FASTRO, was invited to speak at the sixth annual Biennial Science of Global Prostate Cancer Disparities in Black Men Conference, held virtually November 10-13, 2021.
The Prostate Cancer Transatlantic Consortium launched the event in Jacksonville, FL in 2010. Funded by the National Cancer Institute and co-organized by the African-Caribbean Cancer Consortium and multiple institutions and organizations, the conference has employed a unique approach to understand and address prostate cancer disparities through team science initiatives, resulting in several scholarly achievements.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Science of Survivorship (S.O.S): Eliminating Prostate Cancer Disparities in Black Men Globally.” Dr. Mendenhall (right) participated in Session IV: Clinical Trials Updates on Prostate Cancer Survivorship and discussed the rationale for the COMPPARE study, the role of engagement in its design and conduct, and its current status.
