By OHDR Admin
Researcher

Carmen Radecki Breitkopf, Ph.D.

Summary

Research focused on understanding and reducing disparities in health that may result from patient-related factors, including sociodemographics, English language proficiency, and cultural beliefs about health and disease – in particular, psychological and behavioral aspects of cancer prevention among minority and vulnerable populations. May involve studying issues related to decision-making surrounding participation in clinical research among groups that are frequently underrepresented in research, such as adolescents, women and minorities.
