Ashley Housten

Assistant Professor, Division of Public Health Sciences, Department of Surgery

Ashley Housten’s research focuses on supporting cancer screening and treatment decision-making to reduce health disparities and to address challenges associated with health literacy in racially/ethnically marginalized populations. Specifically, she is interested in the dissemination and implementation of decision support strategies to improve health behaviors and outcomes, particularly in populations that experience cancer-related health inequity. With a focus on how people evaluate and apply health information, her research uses qualitative and mixed methods to identify challenges and opportunities to strengthen patient-provider engagement in decision-making across the cancer care continuum.
