Abstract : Our intent has been to identify African American males diagnosed with prostate cancer between the ages of 40 and 75 and to enter them along with their at risk relatives into a program of cancer education, cancer screening, and early intervention to reduce disparities in prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates in the African American community in Nebraska and Mississippi. Family history of prostate and other cancers is being recorded with the purpose of identifying any hereditary prostate cancer syndrome. In addition, social and behavioral determinants are collected and recorded during the interview process for the final analysis. This will be possible through the recruitment of a total of 800 African Americans who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, through recruitment activities and screenings in Omaha, Nebraska, and Jackson, Mississippi.
