About the Program

CHDI is comprised of two programs:

The Ella Binational Breast Cancer is a study to investigate whether epidemiological and clinical risk factors as well as standard and novel tumor markers, which predict for increased incidence and prognosis of breast cancer, differ between women in Mexico and Mexican-American women living in the US.

The mission is to alleviate the unequal burden of cancer among Native Americans of the Southwest through research, training and community outreach programs in collaboration with the communities they serve.
