Join members of the St. Louis and Washington University community for the next Siteman Speaker Series webinar presented by the Siteman Cancer Center Advancement Office.    The second installment in our series will feature a conversation with Dr. Bettina Drake, Dr. Graham Colditz, Dr. Lannis Hall, Dr. Aimee James, Dr. Vetta Sanders-Thompson, and Marilyn Wilson. Their conversation will focus on Siteman’s Program for the Elimination of Cancer Disparities (PECaD) and the work they are doing to address and reduce disparities in cancer prevention and care in the St. Louis community and beyond. They will discuss the main pillars of the program and their regionally focused research within breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers. In addition, they will talk about the importance of diversity in clinical trials as well as the significance of promoting outreach, education, and access to clinical services in the community.    
We hope you will take time to join us for this look into the work Siteman Cancer Center is doing in St. Louis, for St. Louis.
