Charlene Caburnay manages one of three large research studies at the HCRL funded through the NCI's Centers of Excellence in Cancer Communication Research (CECCR) initiative. The study, Enhancing Localization of Cancer News Stories in Black Newspapers, is a national intervention trial among Black newspapers in 36 U.S. Cities that partners with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to increase localization and expand the reach of a cancer news service (Ozioma News Service). The Ozioma News Service delivers community- and race-specific cancer information to Black newspapers in the form of customized news releases. Her broad research experience and interests include health media interventions, health and cancer communication, childhood immunization, and community-level chronic disease interventions.
