Health Equity/Research Interest
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in the world among men, with significant racial/ethnic disparities in treatment and survival observed. Our project focuses on AA men (a racial group that has the lowest prostate cancer survival rates in New York City, State, and the US) and H/L men (an ethnic group that is less likely to receive therapy for prostate cancer compared to whites, even when they have more aggressive disease) in the NYPH Brooklyn/Queens catchment. My study will explicitly identify the influences of shared decision makers along the cancer continuum, which is crucial for elucidating potential social and contextual factors that may contribute to disparities in prostate cancer treatment and prognosis among AA and H/L men.
A dual interest in molecular imaging probe development and the genetic/socioeconomic causes of the uneven burden of illness.
