Michelle Doose, PhD, MPH, is a Cancer Prevention Fellow in the Health Systems and Interventions Research Branch of the Healthcare Delivery Research Program. Michelle’s research focuses on healthcare delivery and cancer care outcomes among cancer patients and survivors with complex health and social needs, using a health equity lens. She is particularly interested in understanding how multidisciplinary care teams coordinate cancer and comorbid care within and across healthcare systems and identifying modifiable points for interventions. Her previous research examined the multilevel factors (i.e., patient, provider, and health system) that influence clinical care management of diabetes and hypertension among Black women with breast cancer.
Michelle earned her PhD in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology at the Rutgers School of Public Health and is a graduate of the Health Policy Research Scholar Program, a national leadership development program, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Following her MPH in Community Health Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles, Michelle worked as a health educator helping cancer survivors navigate health and wellness after cancer. She also helped develop culturally-tailored, innovative interventions to prepare cancer survivors with their transition to post-treatment care. Michelle received her bachelor’s degrees in International Studies and Spanish at Pepperdine University.
