What Inspires Me?

I joined the Cancer Disparity Research team as an intern in 2022, and I am now an Associate Scientist. I am happy to apply my knowledge and skills at the American Cancer Society while learning about cancer research. It's always exciting to gain insights from large amounts of data that can help reduce cancer disparities."
