Michon Jackson, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Health Outcomes Research and Pharmacoeconomics graduate program and Title III Graduate Scholar (Graduate Assistant), presented her research titled, “Therapeutic Efficacy and Racial/Ethnic Representation in the Treatment of Uterine Cervical Neoplasia”, at the 7th International African-Caribbean Cancer Consortium Conference. The research study examined how well medicine for advanced cervical cancer worked, and how often women of color were enrolled in cervical cancer trials in the United States. The conference was held October 11-15, 2019 in Kingston Jamaica.
Presenting at conferences gives graduate students the opportunity to meet others with similar interests, to discuss their research, and learn valuable information from people working on similar programs and research in the same discipline. This experience also allows them network and create contacts for future employment or post-doc placement.
