Anna María Nápoles, PhD, MPH, is a Professor and behavioral epidemiologist in the Department of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. She is affiliated with the UCSF Center for Aging in Diverse Communities where she leads the Community Liaison Core and Co-leads the Analysis Core, and Redes en Acción: The National Latino Cancer Research Network. Her research focuses on psycho-oncology, patient-clinician communication, cancer health disparities, and community-based models of research in ethnically and socioeconomically diverse groups. She has built community-academic research partnerships to develop and test evidence-based behavioral interventions for ethnically diverse adults in community-based settings. Her current research involves developing and testing community-based interventions to improve symptom management and quality-of-life among ethnically diverse breast cancer patients. Presently, she is working on two community-based randomized controlled trials, one testing a peer-delivered cognitive-behavioral stress management intervention for Latinas with breast cancer called Nuevo Amanecer, and another examining the effects of community choirs on the health and well-being of ethnically diverse older adults.
