Graduating PhD candidates

 

Joshua webJoshua Demb, MPH (2014)

My academic and professional careers have focused on learning about all aspects of cancer: screening/prevention, treatment planning, and outcomes.  My background includes a strong foundation in epidemiologic and statistical methods, as well as strong interests in shared decision-making and health information technology.  In the PhD program, I hope to improve upon my current understanding of epidemiologic methods, and learn more advanced statistical methods more pertinent to chronic disease and, more specifically, cancer epidemiology.  It is my goal to learn more about different aspects of cancer screening, particularly the decision support a provider offers a patient throughout the screening process, and potentially upon diagnosis.
