Current Research Interests

Dr. Salz’s primary research interest is in understanding and improving the quality of care for cancer survivors. Currently, Dr. Salz is working to understand whether treatment summaries and plans for recommended care can improve the ongoing post-treatment care of colorectal cancer survivors.  She is also interested in developing clinical tools to predict and prevent cardiovascular late effects after a diagnosis of lymphoma.
