The Cancer SIGNAL podcast: Improving Cancer Screening in the LGBTQ+ Community.

Whitman-Walker’s Jonathon Rendina, PhD, MPH and Dwight Venson joined Kim Thiboldeaux on GRAIL’s “The Cancer SIGNAL” podcast to discuss how LGBTQ+ people and people of color face disparities in cancer incidence. Whitman-Walker, Cancer Support Community, and GRAIL are collaborating on INCLUDE, a study to evaluate multi-cancer early detection (MCED) testing’s impact within federally qualified health centers. The goal: make this kind of cancer screening available to more people in the future. Jon and Dwight discuss barriers to access, how LGTBQ+ and minority experiences of cancer care can be different, and how MCED testing may play a role in helping underserved groups.
