Title: Baquet, Claudia
Description: Claudia Baquet, M.D., M.P.H., former Associate Director, Cancer Control Science Program and former Director, Special Populations Research Branch, National Cancer Institute. Dr. Baquet's research laid the foundation for what is now called "health disparities" dating back to her landmark work at NCI (1984-1992) and her role on the Secretary's Task Force on Black and Minority Health Chapters on Health Services and Cancer. This led to a policy change at NCI in reporting cancer statistics by requiring the inclusion of race and ethnic specific data which were essential in the development of the first intervention trials to address screening and tobacco cessation for African Americans.
