Research Summary:

Cancer’s impact doesn’t end at the conclusion of curative treatment. Survivorship care is a critical part of patients’ journey that I have dedicated my career to investigating. My research has focused on the needs, quality of life, side effects, and challenges faced by survivors of breast cancer. I am also dedicated to improving education in survivorship care for new generations of medical professionals, integrating diverse and innovated curricula for both medical residents and undergraduate medical students.
