The 15-week summer program provides special educational opportunities for students to learn about cancer epidemiology in special populations as well as translation of epidemiology into cancer control and prevention interventions.

Ms. Lott is a doctoral student in health behavior health promotion. She will be working at Tikur Anbessa (Black Lion) Hospital and Radiotherapy Unit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia ― the only cancer treatment center in the country.

Ms. Murray and Ms. Baum, both master’s students with a concentration in epidemiology, will be working with the Gharbiah Cancer Society in Tanta, Egypt.
