    Collapse Overview
    Dr. DeRouen is a cancer epidemiologist with dual training in cancer biology and epidemiology. Her ongoing research efforts are focused on cancer prevention and control and address cancer disparities due to multi-level determinants, especially social determinants of health. Dr. DeRouen has experience with pooling and harmonizing complex multi-level data, including contextual-level data and data from electronic health records, from disparate sources and designing studies of multi-level data to study cancer disparities.
