We’re excited to share a new article by HELI 2011 alum Tisha Felder, PhD, MSW, and HELI 2016 alum Charles Rogers, PhD, MPH.

Mentoring, Training, and Scholarly Productivity Experiences of Cancer-Related Health Disparities Research Trainees: Do Outcomes Differ for Underrepresented Scientists?“ is published in the Journal of Cancer Education. A PDF of the article is available here.

Dr. Felder is an Assistant Professor and Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the College of Nursing and Core Faculty with the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina. The long-term goal of Dr. Felder’s research is to identify approaches that address racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in health, with an emphasis on disadvantaged populations diagnosed with cancer. She also has strong research interests in the mentoring and training on junior faculty from underrepresented backgrounds in biomedical science.

Dr. Rogers is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine & Community Health and a Researcher with the Program in Health Disparities Research at the University of Minnesota Medical School. He is a behavioral scientist and his research agenda contributes to translational solutions that address the complex underpinnings of inequalities in colorectal cancer prevention and control among African American and other underserved men.

Additional coauthors on this paper include Kathryn L. Braun, Lisa Wigall, Maria Sevoyan, Shraddha Vyas, Samira Khan, Heather M. Brandt, Sora Tanjasiri, Cheryl A. Armstead, and James R. Hebert.
