Cancer Initiative Challenge 2013:
Cancer patients face difficulties and challenges from the moment they are diagnosed. There are numerous problems to be solved in the processes of cancer detection, cancer treatment, and cancer survivorship follow-up. The Asian American population in particular has a special burden, as cancer is the number one leading cause of death in Asian American women.
National APAMSA Cancer Initiative hosted a challenge to develop solutions for these problems related to cancer. This competition is open to premedical, medical, and other healthcare students, so long as the applicant belongs to an APAMSA chapter.
