Please join me in welcoming Dr. Brian Sprague this Friday, March 30th at
noon in S359 at the Courtyard in Given.
Dr. Sprague is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at UVM and an epidemiologist
whose research focuses on breast cancer prevention. Some of his work has
involved the use of multi-level modeling to evaluate individual- and community-
level socioeconomic disparities in breast cancer incidence and survival. He has
also examined molecular markers of endogenous and exogenous exposures in
relation to breast cancer risk. Dr. Sprague is currently a co-investigator with the
Vermont Mammography Registry.
Dr. Sprague will be presenting “Improving mammography screening by developing
prognostic markers for early stage breast cancer.”
