Assistant Professor Katrina Ellis has been named an inaugural Rogel Scholar in Cancer Health Equity. The award recognizes exceptional faculty dedicated to achieving impact on cancer prevention, patient outcomes and quality of life.
“It's truly an honor to be selected as an inaugural Rogel Scholar in Cancer Health Equity. I am very passionate about improving the support we provide to families after a cancer diagnosis as part of larger efforts to address the disproportionate burden of cancer we see among certain racial and ethnic groups in the United States. This award provides valuable support for my ongoing work in this area, particularly projects that will work in a participatory manner with African Americans families to better understand and address their cancer-related health needs while building on the strengths and resources that already exist within these family systems.” said Ellis.
