Among other urgent public health concerns are the disproportionate disease risk and mortality due to prostate and colorectal cancers in Black Americans. Black American men have the highest prostate cancer morbidity and mortality rates of all racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. Colorectal cancer, one of the few cancers that is preventable through the use of screening, continues to show widening disparities when comparing White and Black Americans.
