Lifelines Cancer Education Series: Resources for Multicultural Media

Lifelines™ is a series of cancer education articles, videos and audio files from the National Cancer Institute’s Multicultural Media Outreach (MMO) Program. The series addresses cancer prevention, treatment, survivorship, health disparities, clinical trials and other cancer-related topics for African-American, Hispanic, Asian American and Pacific Islander and Native American populations. 

These materials were developed for use by ethnic media, but anyone can download and re-post or publish Lifelines™. Articles, videos, and audio files are listed by topic to help you find information of interest to your audience.  If you need assistance, please e-mail the MMO team at ncimulticultural@mail.nih.gov

In the Spotlight

Periodically, Lifelines™ will introduce NCI researchers who are involved in various aspects of cancer disparities research.  “Meet the Researchers” shows you the people behind the science, especially as it relates to cancer and its effect on minority and multicultural populations. You can hear many of these researchers  in Lifelines™ Education Series videos and audio segments. The researcher stories may be freely reused.
