Dr. Foraker's research focuses on the association between socioeconomic status and cardiovascular disease outcomes, such as heart failure, myocardial infarction and receipt of evidence-based therapies. In her role as assistant professor in the College of Public Health, she is pursuing research broadly focused on health disparities and chronic disease. Dr. Foraker has considerable interest in co-occurring risk factors for cardiovascular disease and cancer, and am co-author on a manuscript in progress which presents the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors among cancer survivors in the FOCUS study. She is also interested in extending this work to evaluate factors influencing the management of cardiovascular disease among cancer patients, as increasing cancer survivorship has important implications for CVD morbidity and mortality.
