Research Abstract

I am interested in decision-making about breast cancer screening and genetic testing both at a policy level and the level of the individual clinician and patient. I am also interested in breast cancer screening policies and early detection strategies in resource-limited settings, and using implementation science to inform effective and feasible strategies in such settings. I am also working increasingly on the quality of breast cancer care in low- and middle-income countries. My clinical practice is in primary care internal medicine and urgent care at the Phyllis Jen Center for Primary Care at BWH. I precept BWH internal medicine residents and regularly give lectures about breast cancer screening and cancer screening more generally.
