Although overall survival with contemporary therapy now exceeds 80 percent, 5-year survival rates in some populations vary significantly, and pediatric patients who do not complete their treatment are at risk for relapse.

  • Daniel S. Reuland, M.D., MPH, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, is one of three primary care physicians who will receive time, training, and mentorship from senior researchers and faculty to strengthen research and teaching skills in the area of cancer control for Latino / Hispanic populations. In particular, he proposes to develop a culturally and linguistically appropriate computer-based tool to deliver information about colon cancer screening.

  • Beverly Bagwell, MSW, Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital, will lead a team that will train an intern to deal with pediatric cancers and treatment regimens as well as the psychosocial impact of cancer and treatment on the child and family. The hospital is one of eleven sites that will receive funding to support the training of a master's student in oncology social work
