NSU-COM faculty members Janet Lynn Roseman, Ph.D., M.S., RDMT, assistant professor of medical education, and Kamilah B. Thomas-Purcell, Ph.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of public health, recently received the 2016–2017 Kenyon Primary Care Cancer-Related Research Grant. Since 2001, NSU-COM has provided this funding opportunity to faculty members through an endowment created by the late Franklin Kenyon and Frances Kenyon Agneski.

Roseman is conducting a study to understand how primary care physicians in obstetrics and gynecology/women’s oncology at the Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island in Providence can potentially benefit from participating in the Sidney Project in Spirituality and Medicine and Compassionate Care. For the past three years, the project has been part of the curriculum at NSU-COM’s affiliated residency sites.

Thomas-Purcell is managing a study designed to determine the effects of a social marketing education intervention on breast and cervical cancer screening in women ranging in age from 21 to 64 in Grenada—an island country and sovereign state consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea.
