Under the mentorship of Dr. Sallie Weaver, Janeth is characterizing multidisciplinary cancer care in and across health systems using population-based data. She is also working with Drs. Brenda Adjei and Gurvaneet Randhawa on projects focused on address social determinants of health and cancer health disparities within the context of cancer care delivery. Prior to joining HSIRB, Janeth served as the National Cancer Institute’s National Outreach Network (NON) Community Health Educator under the New Mexico State University – Fred Hutch Comprehensive Partnership to Advance Cancer Health Equity. In this capacity, she developed a sustainable program for cancer education, outreach, and research dissemination in New Mexico.
Janeth received her doctorate in Health Services with an emphasis in evaluative sciences and statistics from the University of Washington, where she conducted research that examined racial/ethnic disparities in colorectal cancer postoperative surveillance care using the SEER–Medicare linked database. Her research interests include using population-based and survey data to examine how multiple individual and contextual influences, such as health system processes, facilitate and/or hinder the delivery of cancer care.
