Investigating Behavior Change Interventions Regarding Lung Cancer Screening in the Ambulatory Setting to Improve Lung Health
As part of the Lung Cancer Disparities Working Group, Dr. Lauren Groner is working on a research project entitled Investigating Behavior Change Interventions Regarding Lung Cancer Screening in the Ambulatory Setting to Improve Lung Health (IBREATHE). The IBREATHE project is set to improve health equity with regards to lung cancer by 1) integrating social science and health equity domains with clinical translational research; 2) focusing on the intersection of lung cancer and health disparities through collaborations between academic health centers and urban and rural providers; and 3) facilitating community engagement, outreach, and involvement, trust and relationship building. Essentially, The IBREATHE project will aim to improve health outcomes for all patients, particularly minoritized and marginalized communities. While the initiative is not yet funded, grant applications will be submitted in the 2021 fall semester.
