Rhoads Named Director of Cancer Outreach Programs For Stanford Cancer Center, Cancer Prevention Institute of California
Date:3/1/2010

on">California. One of her priorities -- in both her new position and her continuing academic research -- is to find ways of reducing cancer outcome disparities among racial and ethnic minorities in California.

"I am excited for the opportunity to work at the intersection between clinical care, community engagement in cancer prevention, and research on prevention, treatment and outcomes," said Rhoads. "Increasing access to high-quality care across the cancer continuum -- from screening and early detection to survivorship and surveillance -- is one way to address health disparities. But the problems are complex, and I believe that more durable, long-term solutions will require a substantial investment in academic/community partnerships to improve cancer education, share health resources and, ultimately, to provide equitable cancer care to all."

In her new role beginning March 1, Rhoads will work to enhance research collaborations between the clinician-scientists at the Stanford Cancer Center and the cancer prevention scientists at CPIC. She will also work closely with CPIC education professionals to build strong academic/community partnerships that improve cancer prevention and outcomes. Ultimately, her work will enhance the ability of CPIC and the Stanford Cancer Center to reduce the burden of cancer on underserved populations in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, the greater Bay Area and throughout
