On February 8th I traveled to Chapel Hill for the Fifth Annual Robert C. Millikan Cancer Epidemiology Seminar, presented by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Department of Epidemiology, Gillings School of Global Public Health. There I had the pleasure of meeting the winner of the 2018 Robert C. Millikan Cancer Epidemiology Award: Chelsea Anderson. Chelsea is a PhD candidate in Epidemiology at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and a Predoctoral Fellow at Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. A prolific writer, her research has been published in numerous journals, including JAMA Oncology and International Journal of Cancer.
"My research interests are focused on long-term health outcomes among cancer survivors, including second cancer events, noncancer chronic diseases, and reproductive outcomes. I am especially interested in potential late effects of cancer treatment on morbidity and mortality in long-term cancer survivors. To date, I have worked on projects focused on adolescent and young adult cancer survivors and breast cancer survivors." Chelsea Anderson
