events each year are determined by our community-based networks
in each city, and with an attempt to avoid scheduling conflicts
with other major African American activities in these key cities.

Initiative on Cancer (NBLIC) for Cancers, National Human Genome
Center (NHGC) for Diabetes, Hypertension and Center for Information
