Arthur is a health behavior scientist whose research specializes in cancer survivorship and supportive care in oncology. Current projects investigate novel approaches for interventions to address sexual well-being in women treated for cancer and their partners, to implement survivorship care plan recommendations in older adults, and understand biopsychosocial outcome patterns in young adults diagnosed with cancer.

Microwave ovens produce radio-frequency waves that cause the water molecules in an object to vibrate. This vibration causes friction, which allows the object to heat up to a temperature that can kill germs.
