American Samoa Community Cancer Network
The specific goals of this project, entitled American Samoan Community Cancer Network (ASCC Network), are to reduce cancer incidence and mortality among Samoans in the U.S. Territory of American Samoa through the establishment of a sustainable infrastructure to:
(1) promote cancer awareness within American Samoan communities; and
(2) initiate a cancer research and training program to develop indigenous Samoan researchers.
(1) Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) Tropical Medical Center;
(2) American Samoa Community College (ASCC); and
(3) American Samoa Department of Health (DOH).
(1) establish the ASCC Network infrastructure with partnering agencies;
(2) foster and facilitate cancer education programs to increase cancer awareness;
(3) create programs and opportunities to develop Samoan researchers;
(4) increase the number of research grants addressing cancer in American Samoa; and
(5) establish a culturally appropriate process to support scientifically rigorous research that is respectful of American Samoan cultural beliefs, practices, and customs. As a result of these programs, we want to realize a downward trend in cancer incidence and mortality in American Samoans over the next decade.
