Pacific Islander Biospecimen Education Toolkit
The Pacific Islander Biospecimen Education Toolkit was created to improve knowledge about biospecimen donation and encourage Pacific Islanders (PIs) in Southern California to donate biospecimens to help advance cancer research.
The toolkit aims to 1) educate PIs about what biospecimens are and what they are used for; 2) emphasize the importance of biospecimen donation among PIs; and 3) assess knowledge and attitude changes about biospecimens, their collection, and their use in biomedical research.
Developed in collaboration with community leaders and academic researchers, it is intended for use by PI community-based educators to inform PI adults 18 years of age and older about biospecimens and the significance of biospecimens donations. It may also be used as a precursor to biospecimen collections. Learn More>>
