Jamie S. Ostroff, PhD, Director

Health beliefs and behaviors are critically important to virtually all cancer prevention and control efforts, including reduction in cancer risk behaviors, adherence to cancer screening guidelines, treatment decision-making, and cancer risk assessment and communication. Current research activities focus on several behavioral and psychosocial aspects of cancer prevention and control, particularly the prevention and control of tobacco-related cancers through early detection and smoking cessation.
