Cancer Control

Research Summary

My research interest is in cancer disparities. I work at a safety net hospital, and the majority of my patients are underserved and have several challenges in addition to their cancer.

I am also interested in supportive care issues in cancer. My area of interest is chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting and neuropathy.
