Reema Hamasha

Precision Health Program Certificate Student
School of Information MS Health Informatics Student


Reema is a first-year master’s student in Health Informatics with interests in health literacy within electronic health records (EHR). Her exposure to precision medicine began when she worked as a clinical research associate in the U-M Rogel Cancer Center where she consented and collected patient health information for various clinical trials. She also worked with the Prostate Cancer Precision Medicine Multi-Institutional Collaborative Effort (PROMISE) Consortium where she collaborated with many institutions to create a repository of clinical-genomic data for prostate cancer therapies. By working with treatment data, Reema realized the importance of patient centered health information used to discuss and compare treatment plans available to further predict diverse events and create future prospective studies. With the help of mentors and opportunities available through the precision health certificate, she hopes to improve her skills and gain new opportunities.
