She is responsible for developing a nationwide strategic framework for coordinating, communicating, and integrating interdisciplinary and inter-organizational cancer caregiver research and program dissemination and implementation. She also coordinates the development and communication of key messages for internal and external audiences to advance the Society’s priorities, activities, initiatives and programs relative to cancer caregivers.

During Rachel’s 19-year tenure at the American Cancer Society, she has also worked in the Behavioral Research Center managing the nation’s largest, longitudinal dyadic studies of quality of life among cancer survivors and their caregivers – the Study of Cancer Survivors-I and the National Quality of Life Survey for Caregivers, respectively. With nearly 40 scientific publications and over 100 presentations made from ACS-funded data, she has been The Society’s point-person for content in the area of caregiver quality of life and adjustment outcomes.

Join Rachel for her panel discussion at our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Panel Discussion: Is it possible to have a voice of change around Caregiving? What does it mean to be a Caregiving Advocate at the National Level? 
Friday 1 p.m.
This Policy & Advocacy ACT segment will introduce you to diverse organizations that are actively engaged in health policy and advocacy initiatives at a national level. Through an engaging panel discussion they'll share their expertise and perspectives. These are organizations that you could get involved with TODAY so that your caregiving voice is heard. You will learn tips, tricks and channels that can empower your caregiving expertise to drive transformational change.
