Communication, Health Equity & Engagement Research (CHEER)
Areas of Interest
Health Communication • Health Equity • Cancer Survivors & Caregivers
Central to my training and research has been the drive to understand key factors that influence how people communicate about cancer and the actions that result from this communication with a focus on eliminating the influence that health disparities have in shaping and limiting decision options. My program of research focuses on promoting informed and shared decision making through effective communication and measuring and evaluating sociocultural and health disparities that influence patient information needs, knowledge, attitudes and behaviors.
