I am very thankful for the Cancer Prevention Research Training Program (CPRTP).
Drs. Chang and Cameron have always been available to give great insight and guidance.
This (cancer prevention research) project also solidified my desire to develop and examine interventions for cancer patients with poor prognosis.
