Plans are well underway for Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Symposium Series. In 1987, the Biennial Symposium on Minorities and Cancer was launched in Houston, Texas to coincide with the launching of National Minority Cancer Awareness Week. In 1995, with the launching of the Intercultural Cancer Council, the Symposium Series moved to Washington, D.C. and was renamed the Biennial Symposium on Minorities, the Medically Underserved & Cancer. This renaming was in recognition of cancer being a national issue that needed to be on the forefront of America’s health agenda. Following the 2008 Biennial Symposium on Minorities, the Medically Underserved & Cancer, a decision was made to host regional meetings around the country and bring everyone back together in 2012.

In 2012, the Symposium Series has returned to Houston, its city of origin. Houston has one of the most diverse populations in the country and the largest medical complex in the world. Since cancer is only one of many health disparities faced by minority and underserved individuals, the 2012 meeting will not limit its discussion to only cancer issues. It will be hosted by the Center for Health Equity & Evaluation Research (a joint venture of the University of Houston and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center) and the Intercultural Cancer Council.

We appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm for our Symposium Series and hope you’ll join us in Houston for the 25th Anniversary of the Biennial Symposium on Minorities, the Medically Underserved & Health Equity.
