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.
