Wisconsin County Cancer Profiles
CHDI's Wisconsin County Cancer Profiles provide a user-friendly overview of each county's cancer outcomes and risk factors as well as other determinants of health. The profiles are intended to increase awareness and promote thoughtful discussions about cancer's impact on communities throughout Wisconsin. They can also be used to frame community-level assessments and strategic planning initiatives.
Rural Perceptions of Clinical Trials
CHDI's brief report on Rural Perceptions of Clinical Trials describes rural residents’ attitudes toward clinical trials participation. The report presents findings from two focus groups conducted by CHDI staff in rural Adams County as a part of CHDI's Rural Cancer Disparities Project. Two key findings were the willingness of participants to participate in clinical trials and the importance of forming a trusting relationship between study staff and potential participants.
