Lina Jandorf’s research efforts are focused on reducing disparities in cancer screening, early detection, and mortality. This work has been focused on understanding cultural, interpersonal and organizational barriers to cancer screening as well as important associations between health disparities and mortality and morbidity. Through the use of Peer Lay Health Workers, her research focuses on the development and implementation of culturally and linguistically appropriate interventions to support and encourage cancer screening for medically underserved individuals. Ms. Jandorf also directs a number of clinical initiatives, funded through the Division of Gastroenterology (Steven Itzkowitz, M.D.), exploring new, less invasive ways to screen for colorectal cancer. These include stool-based methodologies for both average risk individuals and those at higher risk due related to Irritable Bowel Disorders (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease).
