[Source: TGen] – Outreach efforts by the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) extend to the far corners of Arizona.

For the second year, TGen will help organize a cancer awareness conference for northeastern Arizona’s vast Navajo Nation. The 2nd annual Fort Defiance Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Conference, sponsored by the Arizona Myeloma Network, is planned 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. July 18 at the Navajo Nation Museum, Arizona 264 and Postal Loop Road, in Window Rock.

The first conference in October was an unqualified success that exceeded expectations, said Mechelle Morgan-Flowers, a nurse and supervisor who works at the nearby Fort Defiance Indian Hospital.
