Public Health Sciences members Dr. Jennifer Lobo, Dr. Roger Anderson, and Dr. Bethany Horton are Co-Investigators on a recently funded Research Scholar Grant from the American Cancer Society led by PI Dr. Tracey Krupski (Department of Urology). The multidisciplinary team includes other Co-Investigators from Urology, the School of Nursing, and Telemedicine. The purpose of this study is to implement a telemedicine approach for delivering surveillance cystoscopy for bladder cancer patients in rural Virginia. The novel tele-cystoscopy model aims to improve compliance rates with surveillance guidelines and detect cancer recurrence earlier. The project is titled “Tele-cystoscopy: Widening Access to Bladder Cancer Surveillance”.
