'Imi Hale - Hawaiian Cancer Network
`Imi Hale is a 10-year project funded by the National Cancer Institute - Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities aimed at reducing the burden of cancer among Native Hawaiians.
The overall goal of this project is to reduce cancer incidence and mortality among Native Hawaiians by maintaining and expanding `Imi Hale - Native Hawaiian Cancer Network, an infrastructure that:
1) promotes cancer awareness with Native Hawaiian communities;
2) provides research education and training to increase cancer prevention and control research by Native Hawaiian researchers and the number of Native Hawaiian researchers; and
3) facilitates application of evidence-based information for reducing cancer health disparities through policy development and implementation, and translation of data into cancer prevention and control practice.
