Pamela S. Sinicrope, M.P.H., Dr.PH., develops novel, theory-based behavioral and communication-based interventions to prevent the morbidity and mortality related to cancer and chronic illness.

Focus areas

  • Treatment goal-setting interventions for people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Family-based approaches for smoking cessation and cancer screening.
  • Community-based participatory research to reduce health disparities among underserved populations, including those in rural areas, and American Indian or Alaska Native people.
  • Mixed-methods evaluation research.

Significance to patient care

The findings of Dr. Sinicrope's research can be readily integrated within existing systems of care for patients. Two examples include:

  • Helping patients with rheumatoid arthritis set goals with their health care providers to accomplish treatment outcomes.
  • Successfully introducing cancer screening strategies with American Indian and Alaska Native populations.
