Lab Alumni
Sarah Price

Sarah received her doctoral degree in 2022 and is now a postdoctoral scholar at Wake Forest University. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in the Biological Basis of Behavior. After graduation, Sarah contributed to several research projects at the Perelman School of Medicine, aimed at developing breast cancer screening tools, tracking treatment outcomes and quality of life among patients with cutaneous sarcoidosis, and, more recently, providing smoking cessation counseling and pharmacotherapy to patients who continue to smoke after cancer diagnosis. 

Sarah contributed to several PRO lab projects, including the implementation of a collaborative care intervention to treat depression among cancer survivors. She is especially interested in the assessment and treatment of psychological distress and health-compromising behaviors (e.g. tobacco use, chronic opioid use, poor sleep) in the context of cancer care. Sarah spends as much of her free time as possible outside; she especially enjoys rock climbing, camping, and hiking.
