Study on Racial Disparities in Cancer Treatment by Eason, Haimson, & Zhang

In collaboration with Department of Sociology graduate students Chloe Haimson and Jienian Zhang and investigators at the UW-Madison’s Carbone Center, Associate Professor John Eason’s research on racial disparities in cancer treatment and survival has found that non-Hispanic Black patients in Wisconsin were half as likely as white patients to get any treatment for pancreatic cancer and 33% less likely to receive surgery than non-Hispanic White patients.  Their article was recently published in the Wisconsin Medical Journal and featured on Channel 3000 News.
