Dr. Jada Hamilton was awarded a 5-year NCI Cancer Moonshot U01 grant, “Prospective Trial of a Linguistically and Culturally Appropriate Mainstreaming Model for Hereditary Cancer Multigene Panel Testing Among Diverse Cancer Patients”

IMAGINE
Dr. Hamilton and her team, in partnership with Queens Cancer Center and Kings County Hospital Center will be developing, testing, and evaluating a linguistically and culturally appropriate mainstreaming model for hereditary cancer multigene panel testing among cancer patients diverse in race/ethnicity, language, and education. This project (U01 CA243644-01A1) will make a major contribution by transforming genetic counseling and testing practice, and promote effective risk communication, decision making, and more equitable delivery of genomic medicine.
