Dr. Nolan is a health disparities-focused nurse scientist developing interventions that promote self-management in the prevention and control of chronic conditions (i.e. breast cancer and cardiovascular disease). Her dissertation study of young African American (AA) breast cancer survivorship, funded by an American Cancer Society Doctoral Degree in Cancer Nursing Scholarship, provided formative data toward the systematic adaptation of a psychoeducational, quality-of-life intervention. Dr. Nolan’s postdoctoral fellowship afforded her opportunities to examine effects of a cancer prevention intervention for multi-ethnic women while using intramural funds to advance her quality-of-life intervention, as well as exploring connections between cancer and cardiovascular disease in AA women. By identifying/understanding contextual factors of self-management in health and well-being, Dr. Nolan hopes to be better able to develop, implement and disseminate culturally-sensitive interventions for African Americans that will eventually reduce health disparities.
