Jeuneviette Bontemps-Jones, MPH

Senior Associate Scientist, Study Management

what inspired me to study cancer

“My sister-in-law passed away in her early forties from breast cancer. Her passing highlighted for my family the fact that Blacks are disproportionately affected by cancer. According to Cancer Facts & Figures for African & Americans, ‘African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial and ethnic group in the US for most cancers.’ Her untimely death influenced my decision to work in the area of cancer research.”
