Black Family Cancer Awareness Week

June 15 - June 21

National Black Family Cancer Awareness Week, June 15, 2023 through June 21, 2023.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is purposefully using the week of June 15-21 as a way to help increase cancer awareness in one of the most vulnerable segments of the U.S. population. The goal is to marshal community-based stakeholders to build knowledge surrounding cancer clinical trial participation and minority population specimen donations to national genetic databases for cancer research. To participate on social media, use #BlackFamCan.
