Health Equity Workgroup
Meets virtually every second Thursday of each month from 2 – 3 pm
The Health Equity Workgroup is currently working on the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Plus (SOGI+) Data Project which focuses on ensuring the cancer burden for sexual and gender minorities is represented through cancer surveillance data for this marginalized population. The SOGI+ Data Project includes several components that include collaboration with the California Cancer Registry to add appropriate categories to the cancer data dictionary, a data collection pilot with cancer centers, and education and awareness activities.
