Cancer control – cancer risk, cancer prevention, and palliative care
Newcomers – Immigrants and refugees
Dr. Busolo examines many ways that cancer, cancer risk, and cancer prevention is conceptualized and how such conceptualization influences cancer control efforts. The overall research plan is to develop effective population based cancer control programs. Dr. Busolo’s work focuses on newcomers across the lifespan and how their understanding of cancer prevention influences their actions.
Dr. Busolo was awarded a Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute New Investigator award for a research project entitled: Improving cancer screening for immigrant and refugee adults in New Brunswick. He is working with Drs. Roberta Woodgate, Krista Wilkins, and Tracey Rickards on this important research project.
