EGRP invites you to share this newsletter with any colleagues, students, and others who may be interested. We also want to hear from you; let us know what information you need the most from EGRP. Our goal is to increase transparency, generate more dialogue, and create more personal connections with you.

Previously, via our FRIENDS-OF-NCI-EGRP LISTSERV, we shared information on current funding opportunities that support cancer epidemiology research, relevant research resources, workshops, Cancer Epidemiology Matters Blog posts, and more. This newsletter will allow us to share information in one place to reduce the number of e-mails our subscribers receive. We encourage you to subscribe to Cancer Epidemiology Matters E-News because we will be sending fewer individual announcements through the FRIENDS-OF-NCI-EGRP LISTSERV.
