|Deadline for submission is 31st May 2019 The AMA Journal of Ethics® is producing a theme issue dedicated to examining the complex ethics in the inequity in global cancer prevention. Cancer is predicted to be the number one killer in the 21st century and 70% of the cancer burden is concentrated in LMICs. 30-50% are preventable, but prevention efforts are often neglected. With so much focus appropriately turned toward tackling NCDs, this issue comes at an opportune time. The scope of the focus covers both the pediatric and adult populations in categories of bioethics, public health, research, policy, law, and education (no background in ethics is required). Presently there is an open call for papers! There is a deadline of May 31st 2019 for submissions.” I am hoping that you will consider reviewing the call and submitting, as well as helping to distribute widely among your professional networks. Additionally, my hope is to have a strong representation of voices from LMICs! There is no fee for submission or publication” Zachary Tabb Editorial Fellow with the AMA Journal of Ethics®. More information can be found here: https://journalofethics.ama-assn.org/call-papers (scroll to the February 2020 issue). There are so many great voices in the CUGH community that I know would be valuable additions to raising awareness in this neglected arena. For any questions contact Zachary Tabb <email@example.com>
