Scientific Questions Being Studied

To understand cancer screening, testing and treatment seeking among persons living with HIV. As the population of persons living with HIV is aging, the potential for development of other chronic conditions, particularly cancer, is increasing. Therefore, efforts to understand factors associated with access to timely cancer screening, testing, and treatment are warranted.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (HIV and cancer)
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral
  • Other Purpose (To provide information on cancer screening, testing, and treatment among persons living with HIV.)

Scientific Approaches

We will utilize data from the (1) EHR domain on conditions and procedures; (2) Surveys Questions on basics, overall, lifestyle, and personal medical history.

Anticipated Findings

This study will provide information on potential disparities in access to cancer screening which can, in turn, be used to provide information to develop interventions that promote timely cancer screening, testing and treatment among persons living with HIV.

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Race / Ethnicity
  • Age
  • Sex at Birth
  • Gender Identity
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Geography
  • Access to Care
  • Education Level
  • Income Level

Scientific Questions Being Studied

I am exploring the data at this stage to formalize a specific research question. I am interested in racial disparities in cancer and will be performing background research, data exploration, and data manipulation in this stage before I determine what question to ask.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

Currently, I'm still in the beginning stage of defining my research question before I can formalize how I will approach the question. I am looking at what datasets I can use and am familiarizing myself with the All of Us workbench.

Anticipated Findings

I am still defining my research question. I hope that our findings will promote racial equity in cancer.
