This is an hourly, remote position that will begin in June 2023 to June 2024 with the possibility of extension. The Graduate Assistant will work under the direction of the US Principal Investigator (PI) and the project manager to support this Global Health Study: Adaptation and Implementation of a Patient Navigation Program for Cervical Cancer Screening across Contexts in Senegal. This research responds to identified intrapersonal- and community-level barriers to early cervical cancer screening uptake, follow-up, and treatment among women in Senegal. By studying the process of adaptation of a patient navigation program in a low- and middle-income country (LMIC), we will apply implementation science to a novel context. With a particular focus on how the adaptation responds to cancer-related stigma in addition to more typically studied barriers such as communication, knowledge, and structural barriers, our project demonstrates additional innovation.
