Jami Anderson

T32 CPCTP Pre-doctoral Fellow (08/01/2020)

Ms. Anderson is a pre-doctoral fellow and is a third-year doctoral student in the research track of the PhD program in Health Services Administration in the School of Health Professions, University of Alabama at Birmingham. In addition to required coursework for her PhD program, Ms. Anderson will be completing a graduate certificate in Applications of Mixed Methods Research in the summer of 2020 at UAB. During the PhD program, she has had opportunities to develop her research skills including qualitative and mixed methods research through projects related to traumatic experiences, mental health, chronic disease (e.g., cancer survivors), lifestyle choices, and health outcomes. 

Prior to beginning her PhD program, Ms. Anderson earned a Master of Science in International Health and Management; a Master of Biomedical Science; and a post-graduate certificate in Global Mental Health. Ms. Anderson’s area of focus is inter-disciplinary approaches to improving the lives of cancer survivors by supporting and adapting evidence-based healthy lifestyle interventions designed to reduce the recurrence of cancer and increase long-term survivorship. Some examples of her work include: understanding factors influencing the uptake of web-based lifestyle interventions among cancer survivors; caregiver experiences with cancer-related palliative care systems in Puerto Rico and the influence of mental health on the uptake of HIV prevention health behaviors among women in Kenya.
