Research Abstract

My research focuses on social determinants of health as explanatory factors for racial and ethnic disparities in cancer risk. An emerging literature demonstrates that disparities in cancer outcomes are not explained solely by access to medical care. Recent work includes the evaluation of a case-management intervention to improve screening and abnormal follow up for breast and cervical cancer screening among black women.
