Team Members


The Onega Team is dedicated to and focused on understanding access to cancer care, especially in rural and frontier populations, with a special interest in health equity for screening and early detection. Working across the cancer control continuum, and using geospatial and health informatics methodologies, we aim to have a population-level impact by improving access to care through new care delivery models, effective care teams, and multimodal services. Dr. Onega is passionate about understanding how place shapes individuals, their health and healthcare trajectories.

In the era of telemedicine, the Onega Team continues to work in the geospatial realm to develop advanced hybrid measures of access to care in the physical and virtual worlds of healthcare. With over 16 years in the national Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC), Dr. Tracy Onega continues her work to bring quality cancer care to rural and frontier populations in the Mountain West through mobile mammography screening.
