Information about the webinar presentation:

People with diabetes are at increased risk for several types of cancer (liver, endometrium, breast, colorectal and bladder) and they can experience worse outcomes than the general population. Similar disparities in risk and outcomes have been described in the AI/AN population.

This session will provide an overview of the epidemiology of cancer in people with diabetes and in the AI/AN population, and strategies for cancer risk reduction. An overview of current cancer screening recommendations will be presented. The role of the diabetes care team in promoting cancer screening as part of routine diabetes care will be addressed, particularly in the post-COVID era when people may have deferred routine care and testing.
