I serve on this CEESP grant because of my expertise in cancer education, research training, and epidemiologic research in minority and underserved settings. I served on the NCI review group, Subcommittee G for many years, and most recently was Chair. I am a Fellow and Past-President of the American Association for Cancer Education. I led the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Training Program, with support from NCI R25E and R25T grants for 18 years until my retirement in 2012. I have worked closely with Dr. Soliman on the CEESP program from its beginning at the University of Michigan, at the University of Nebraska, now at CUNY. I have chaired the Advisory Committee (AC) of the CEESP program over the past 10 years. In 2005, I was selected as a charter member of the University of Texas Academy of Health Science Education. In 2006, the American Association for Cancer Education honored me with their highest award; the Margaret Hay Edwards Medal for outstanding contributions in cancer education. In research, I have developed educationally based recruitment strategies for chemoprevention trials and I was member of the Outcomes Committee of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) that is involved with most of the group’s trials. I have mentored many trainees in their research, particularly in molecular, genetic, and social epidemiology, including many CEESP students.
