Tyler Kratzer, MPH

Associate Scientist II, Cancer Surveillance

What Motivates Me

"While the impact of cancer is universal, the availability of quality care is not. Economic and social disparities lead to disparities in cancer prevention and care. Through my work, I strive to improve the information ecosystem around who is getting cancer, where they live, and why the fight against cancer needs to progress equitably."
