Kate Dibble and Keith Bellizzi receive research award

Kate DibbleKeith BellizziCongratulations to graduate student Kate Dibble and Associate Professor Keith Bellizzi, who recently received a research award from the Connecticut Breast Health Initiative (CTBHI). The project is titled “Genetic counseling for BRCA1/2 mutations: Patient experiences, preferences and outcomes of counseling,” and seeks to examine preferences for individual-based or family centered genetic counseling as well as capturing patient reported outcome  data on quality of life, overall health and perceived cancer risk following a positive genetic test result.

Keith serves as PI on the grant, but, in Keith’s words, “Kate developed the project to fund her dissertation research, with mentoring from me”.
