UCSD needs 700 volunteers for cancer study
San Diego Union-Tribune

UC San Diego researchers are looking for 700 county residents to participate in a new study that aims to examine the link between neighborhoods and cancer.

Led by Dr. Jacqueline Kerr, an associate professor in the university’s Department of Family Medicine and Public Health, the study will explore whether people who live in neighborhoods with better access to healthy food and safe recreation score lower on measures, such as insulin resistance and inflammation, that increase cancer risk.
