Pathway To A Cure
Elvin Howard Sr. Pancreatic Advocacy Cancer Foundation Fifth Annual Fundraiser
Negative social determinants of health, such as food insecurity, high unemployment, housing insufficiency, lack of access to doctors and routine screenings, all contribute negatively and disproportionately among the poor and African American and other minority racial and ethnic groups. These poor social determinants often translate into high instances of poor health, including higher instances of pancreatic cancer and other chronic health conditions. Through social outreach and engagement that brings awareness and personal support to pancreatic cancer patients, their caregivers, and families, Elvin Howard, Sr PCAF, has brought attention and awareness of pancreatic cancer to many vulnerable communities.
