    Kathryn Weaver, PhD, MPH is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Sciences and Health Policy, Division of Public Health Sciences and an associate member of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Center for Cancer Genomics, and the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity. Dr. Weaver received her PhD in clinical health psychology from the University of Miami and her MPH from the University of Illinois-Chicago. She completed postdoctoral training in the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Office of Cancer Survivorship through the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program. Dr. Weaver joined the Wake Forest School of Medicine faculty in 2009. She serves as co-director of the Wake Forest MS program in Clinical and Population Translational Sciences, Assistant Director for Cancer Health Equity at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, and as an Executive Steering Committee member of the Wake Forest NCI Community Clinical Oncology Program Research Base.

    Dr. Weaver’s program of research focuses on health outcomes, health behaviors, and post-treatment follow-up care among cancer survivors, with an emphasis on cancer health disparities. Much of her research has focused on the underserved population of rural cancer survivors who experience greater mortality and worse health outcomes after cancer diagnosis. She also conducts research on health promotion interventions and post-treatment follow-up care for lung cancer survivors. Dr. Weaver has served as the principal investigator of five NCI grants and contracts and serves as a co-investigator on several other NIH awards focused on cancer prevention and control and women’s health.
