Dr. Shawna Hudson, a medical sociologist, is an Associate Professor and Research Division Chief in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a full member of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. She has a secondary faculty appointment in the Rutgers School of Public Health in the Department of Health Education and Behavioral Science.  Dr. Hudson earned her B.A. from Rutgers College and her M.A and Ph.D. in Sociology from Rutgers University. She completed post-doctoral training in 2002 through a fellowship from the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research. She has expertise in mixed (qualitative and quantitative) methodological research and development of multi-level health care interventions that focus on enhancing care for vulnerable populations, particularly underserved groups including cancer survivors and racial/ethnic minorities in health care settings.  Her current National Cancer Institute funded study Extended Cancer Education for Longer-term Survivors (EXCELS) in Primary Care (R01 CA176838) develops and tests a self-care intervention for cancer survivors in primary care settings that uses a multimedia, web-based mHealth platform (web and smartphone application) supplemented with care management/health coaching.  Dr. Hudson has participated as both principle investigator and co-investigator on numerous studies funded by the National Cancer Institute,  the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  Dr. Hudson is Associate Editor for the Journal of Cancer Survivorship.  She is a past member of the NCI-J study section where she was a reviewer for K-series career development awards.  She has recently been appointed a member of the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research and a standing member of the NIH Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health Study Section.  She is the co-chair for the Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences emerging signature program in Community Health and Health Systems.  Her research has been published in a number of journals including Annals of Family Medicine, Medical Care, and the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.
