About Giselle Perez-Lougee, PhD

I am strongly committed to identifying innovative solutions to improve cancer prevention, health care equity, and cancer outcomes among vulnerable and underserved groups, in particular adolescents and young adults.  My research focuses on the development of behavioral and mind-body interventions to promote stress management and overall physical and emotional health outcomes for patients throughout the cancer spectrum.  Clinically, I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults touched by cancer with a focus on managing the unexpected social and emotional challenges that occur after cancer treatment, improving stress and anxiety symptoms, coping with uncertainty, and promoting health behavior change.  In particular, my work examines the physical, psychosocial, and biobehavioral (e.g., stress hormones) effects of stress and stress interventions in cancer patients and survivors.
