Cancer Focus

My Symptoms, Health, Innovation, Equity (SHINE) research team investigates symptom management interventions to decrease psychological distress and improve quality of life for cancer survivors and their informal caregivers (family members). Over the last decade, I have focused on testing telephone delivered interventions with English-speaking and Spanish-speaking cancer survivors with breast and/or prostate cancer and their caregivers. My current symptom management and supportive care research includes survivors with solid tumors who are currently in or just completing cancer treatment and their caregivers.
