NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Certain cancers disproportionately affect Asian Americans but some of these high rates can be seen only through disaggregated data. Asian Americans are the first racial group in the country to experience cancer as the leading cause of death. This webinar will highlight the data related to cancer in Asian American communities and strategies to combat high cancer rates.
