THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE, OR N-C-I--THE NATION'S CHIEF GOVERNMENT-AGENCY SUPPORTING CANCER-RESEARCH--WANTS TO ENCOURAGE MEMBERS OF MINORITY-POPULATIONS TO LEARN ABOUT CANCER CLINICAL-TRIALS, AND WHAT PARTICIPATION ENTAILS.  CANCER CLINICAL-TRIALS ARE IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE PREVENTION-, DIAGNOSTIC-, AND TREATMENT-APPROACHES TO THIS DISEASE.  PARTICIPATION IN CLINICAL-TRIALS IS LOW IN ALL GROUPS--BUT IS EVEN LOWER AMONG MINORITY-POPULATIONS AND UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES.  ONE OF THE REASONS FOR THIS IS A LACK OF CREDIBLE INFORMATION ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF CLINICAL-TRIALS IN SOME MINORITY-COMMUNITIES.  THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE GET THE RIGHT INFORMATION.  INFORMATION ABOUT PROGRAMS AIMED AT ADVANCING BOTH CANCER-AWARENESS AND CLINICAL-TRIALS AWARENESS IS AVAILABLE BY CALLING THE N-C-I "CANCER INFORMATION SERVICE", AT 1-800-4-"CANCER"--THAT'S 1-800-422-6237--OR BY VISITING W-W-W-DOT-"CANCER"-DOT-GOV.
