    Becky (Rebecca) Salomon, PhD, RN, PMHNP-BC received her doctorate in nursing from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Nursing at the University of California San Francisco. Her scholarly work, supported by funding from the National Institute of Nursing Research and the Jonas Foundation, focuses on the psychoneurological symptom cluster (depressed mood, chronic pain, cognitive dysfunction, sleep disturbance, and fatigue) in chronically stressed low income mothers.

    In her preliminary work, Becky found that these symptoms were associated with the chronic situational stress experienced by low-income mothers as well as a mother's ability to function. She is working to follow up this research by exploring the link between chronic stress, biological markers (with interests in cortisol, inflammation, BDNF, and telomere length), and the development of the psychoneurological symptom cluster in mothers. Her long-term research goal is to develop community-situated stress interventions for the dually vulnerable population of mothers and children.
