Childhood Cancer Should Be Top Children’s Health Research Priority

Adults across the U.S. rate childhood cancer as their top priority for research into improving children’s health, according to a new University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and in this latest poll, 76 percent of adults rated research into childhood cancers as “very important.” That was followed by diabetes, with 70 percent rating it “very important” and birth defects or other genetic problems with 68 percent.
