Prostate Cancer Disparities in the VA Health System - Megan McNamara


Dan George and Megan McNamara discuss the details of a project focused on prostate cancer disparities in the VA health system, leading to her 2018 PCF Young Investigator Award. This work builds upon the Abi Race trial and includes the PANTHER cohort focused on genomic data specific to the African American population. Part two of the project is an extension of the Moonshot Initiative where the VA health system is studying next generation sequencing via the Precision Oncology Program, (POP) in patients with advanced prostate cancer.
