Noshin Haque


Noshin Haque is currently a Macaulay Honors scholar majoring in Psychology at the City College of New York. Through the CCNY-MSKCC Partnership, she studied the comparative effectiveness of various radioimaging techniques for neuroblastoma. Volunteering and working as a Health Leads Advocate in hospitals located in impoverished communities encouraged her to study and address health disparities. Again with the CCNY-MSKCC Partnership, she conducted research on the socioeconomic differences in the psychosocial factors of smokers enrolled in a smoking cessation study led by Dr. Christine Sheffer. In an effort to understand the racial dimension of disparities in tobacco cessation outcomes, Noshin became a TREND Fellowship Scholar and joined a pilot study led by Drs. Lesia Ruglass and James Root to examine racial differences in reactivity and attentional bias to smoking cues. She aims to graduate in 2016 and pursue a career in medicine, where her plans are to ensure access to quality care and specialized medical treatment for minority groups impacted by health disparities.
