from breast cancer in the Inland Empire is consistent with later detection of this screening-detectable cancer among these women," Tadi-Uppala said.

Non-Hispanic white women had a higher-risk of death from breast cancer than the statewide average. Results also showed the following:

  • approximately 11.6 percent of homes had an income below poverty level;
  • 24 percent of participants (mostly black and Latina) aged 16 to 64 years were uninsured;
  • approximately 60 percent were not educated about breast health;
  • 71 percent over 40 years of age did not have a mammogram in the last year; and
  • nearly 80 percent were willing to participate in breast cancer clinical trials, but were not given opportunities to do so.

Tadi-Uppala and colleagues are currently working to educate minority women about the importance of participating in clinical trials, to recruit minority women into clinical trials, and to address lifestyle factors that affect breast cancer among minority women in the Inland Empire.

"We hope funding will be available to schools of public health such as ours that engage in community-based participatory research to reduce breast cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality among minority women who our research demonstrates currently experience an unequal burden of cancer," she said.

990. Fundamental causes of colorectal cancer outcomes

Socioeconomic status plays a role in colorectal cancer mortality rates by hindering health care interventions and/or restricting patient access to care, according to results of a retrospective cohort study.

"Those living in low socioeconomic status counties have yet to benefit from advances made in preventing colorectal cancer deaths more than 30 years ago, whereas those living in high socioeconomic status counties have seen a 33 percent to 50 percent reduction in mortality," said Andrew C. Wang, M.P.H., research assistant and student
