Twin Cities Somalis To Learn About Their Increased Risk for Liver Cancer

By

Doctors from the Mayo Clinic, University of Minnesota, pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences, and Gargar Clinic, a Somali-owned private clinic in Minneapolis, are embarking on a campaign to inform the Somali community about their increased risk for liver cancer. They'll hold the first of what they hope to be many meetings with the Somali community Sunday at the Brian Coyle Center in Minneapolis. The meeting is one attempt to raise awareness of recent findings published in a Mayo Clinic Proceedings journal.
