About Me

At the Wake Forest School of Medicine and Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center (WFBCCC), my research focuses on cancer survivorship, health equity and health care delivery.  My methodological areas of expertise include survey research methods, mixed methods, multi-level interventions, and dissemination and implementation research. I have served as PI of five current and completed NIH grants; I am m-PI on an R01 to test an EHR application to facilitate discussions regarding cardiovascular health for cancer survivors (1R01CA226078). 

I am the multiple PI and Cancer Care Delivery Research Lead of the Wake Forest NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Research Base (UM1 CA189824). In this capacity, I co-direct the coordinating center and serve as the PI/co-I for multiple cancer symptom science and care delivery studies operating within the NCORP network of over 900 community oncology practices.  I also serve as assistant director for the Office of Cancer Health Equity within the WFBCCC.

Within the Wake Forest Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI), I lead the Translational Workforce Development Program and serve on the KL2 Core Faculty. I also participated in the six-month Wake Forest CTSI Mentor Academy training program for experienced research mentors.
