Jennifer M. Jabson, MPH, PhD, received her doctoral and MPH degrees from Oregon State University with emphasis in women's health and cancer survivorship in 2010. After completing her graduate training in public health, she completed an American Cancer Society funded post-doctoral fellowship at Boston University School of Public Health where she specialized in cancer prevention and control and cancer disparities in underserved populations. Her primary research interests include population health, chronic disease and cancer prevention, and cancer survivorship, including evaluating psychosocial and behavioral factors that influence cancer risk and survivorship among underserved minority groups. Jennifer's scholarly activities include research that explores the role of stress and perceived discrimination in cancer survivorship among sexual minority women, health behaviors of racial/ethnic minority cancer survivors, psychosocial factors that relate to chronic disease risk and cancer survivorship among minority groups, and intervention research designed to reduce risk for chronic disease among women in mid-life. Jennifer's long range research program will build on current and future developments regarding disparities in cancer prevention and control to the point of developing and implementing multilevel interventions that eliminate cancer and health disparities among underserved groups.
