My work how the social context affects health in cancer prevention and control. This work includes three main strands: the effects of family on health, the importance of social support, and the role of health communication in reducing disparities. I am currently leading a five-year study funded by the American Cancer Society to examine health and psychosocial outcomes among African American breast cancer patients and their informal caregivers. I am examining how factors such as social support, social needs, and perceived discrimination impact breast cancer and caregiving experiences. The ultimate goal of this research is to reduce health disparities by improving outcomes for Black breast cancer patients and their informal caregivers.
