This is the fourth webinar of a series that focuses on enhancing understanding of the intersection of cancer, obesity and disparities within racially-ethnically diverse populations. The initial webinar provided an overview of the intersection between cancer, obesity and disparities framed around a central question, “Why are obese individuals from underserved, racial/ethnically diverse backgrounds at high-risk for cancer?” This webinar will address the intersectionality of obesity, cancer and population/community-based/behavioral research.
