The University at Buffalo School of Public Health and Health Professions, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai will collaborate on a $2,658,940 grant from the National Cancer Institute to study what influences African-Americans to get screened for colorectal cancer (CRC) and to develop interventions based on those influences. Dr. Marc T. Kiviniemi, assistant professor in the department of community health and health behaviors at the University at Buffalo School of Public Health and Health Professions, is one of three principal investigators on the grant.
