Researcher Spotlight – Electra Paskett, PhD, MSPH

There are more than 3.5 million individuals in the U.S. with a history of breast cancer, making up the largest group of cancer survivors. As deaths due to breast cancer decline and more women live past their breast cancer therapy, many face unique challenges due to their diagnosis and/or treatment that can persist for many years. Dr. Paskett is conducting studies to determine the benefits of lifestyle changes to reduce risk of recurrence and collecting data on patient reported outcomes from large prospective studies to inform strategies to improve quality of life after breast cancer.  For additional information on this PFP-funded project, visit
