Chronic health disparities in cancer remain a major public health concern as not all population subgroups have equal accesses to these healthcare benefits. While previous cancer disparity among racial population studies of Wisconsin had primarily focused on the entire state of Wisconsin, there has not been a study primarily on the southeastern Wisconsin region, which is home to 83% of Wisconsin's African American population; a better understanding of cancer trends in this region can assist in facilitating cancer prevention and control efforts.
