Abstract

Cancer morbidity and mortality in Native Americans in the Southwestern four-corners region of the United States (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah) is of critical concern to public health workers, health care providers, cancer researchers, and Native American communities of the region. As a follow-up to the national conference in Seattle, Washington, representatives from the Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah Cancer Centers, the AMC Cancer Research Center, and the Indian Health Service participated in a regional conference on September 26, 1995. The primary reason for the 'Four Corners Consortium' meeting was to assess cancer research activities in each state and to determine how Native American cancer research could be organized in the four-state region. One interest of the group was to determine strategies to explore why some cancers are more or less prevalent among Southwest Native American populations and to evaluate how the group might jointly establish research that would address the cancer needs of Southwestern tribes.
