Our T32 postdoc program is focused on transdisciplinary cancer prevention and control research. Faculty study health equity, disparities, engagement, and the full continuum from prevention through survivorship. Our program includes postdocs from diverse backgrounds and a range of disciplines including, but not limited to, epidemiology, psychology, community health, public health, social work, implementation science, and other related fields. My own research is focused on improve equity and outcomes in cancer screening and early detection, using community engaged research in low resource settings.
