Dr. Christabel Cheung is co-investigator on a new National Cancer Institute R01 Grant

Dr. Christabel Cheung will serve as co-investigator on a new project entitled, “Individual, cultural, and area-based factors associated with survivorship care among Asian/Asian-American childhood cancer survivors.” Funded by the National Cancer Institute’s R01 funding opportunity.

Led by Dr. Kim Miller (co-PI) at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine and Dr. Joel Milam (co-PI) at University of California Irvine School of Medicine, Dr. Cheung will collaborate with a team of interdisciplinary colleagues in pediatric and adolescent and young adult oncology to implement this five-year prospective cohort study of young adult Asian American childhood cancer survivors and their parents. Asian populations are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. Rates of childhood cancer are increasing for Asian Americans; however, Asian American survivors are under-researched.

This study will examine the individual, family, and neighborhood factors associated with cancer-focused survivorship care among young adult Asian American childhood cancer survivors to foster healthy survivorship for this patient population.
