My primary research focus is modeling cancer patient experience to identify gaps and barriers in care and design interventions tailored to meet the needs of patients, their families, and their healthcare providers. I am also focused on expanding capacity for cancer care across the care continuum using the ECHO telehealth model. I am the PI for the CDC-funded Young And A Survivor Network for Health Equity, a project to enhance support for women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 45.
