Episode 16: Epidemiology, Big Data, and Health Equity in Cancer Research (with special guest Mya Roberson).
On this show, I welcome Maya Roberson, a Ph.D. student at the University Of North Carolina, who focuses on Health Equity in Cancer Research. We discuss her recent publication “Premenopausal gynecologic surgery and survival among black and white women with breast cancer,” her experiences as a Black American growing up in rural America, what inspired her to join her chosen field, and how she became a Trustee just after graduating from Brown University in 2016.

On this show, I am joined by Dennis Strenk, the host of the People of Pathology Podcast, and a Pathologists’ Assistant at Wisconsin Diagnostic Laboratories in Milwaukee, MN. We talk inside secrets of the podcasting scene, including interview strategies and theme songs, and we both reveal our favorite specimen to gross!
