Pamela Ganschow, MD, is Director, Cancer Prevention and Survivorship Clinical Programs at the University of Illinois Cancer Center. Her cancer-relevant research interests span the breadth of cancer care, from screening and prevention through diagnosis and survivorship, identifying gaps and developing best practices in cancer care across the continuum. Improving access to high quality services and interventions, such as patient navigation, can help reduce racial disparities in cancer outcomes. Much of her work has focused health systems research, health literacy and numeracy, and implementation science as it relates to best practices to integrate both survivorship care and cancer genetics services with personalized cancer risk management.

“Ensuring equity and access to cancer preventive and survivorship services is not just a matter of healthcare, but a commitment to reducing disparities and championing the fundamental right to health for all.”
