When a caregiver looks after a family member with cancer, the caregiver often needs support and understanding, as well. Associate Research Professor Catherine Marshall created a far-reaching program, Un Abrazo Para La Familia™ (A Hug for the Family), which provides cancer information and support to low-income, ethnically diverse, and medically underserved family members who are struggling with a cancer diagnosis within the family.
Not only does Marshall work in the college, she also happens to be a grad. She earned a doctorate in rehabilitation in 1985. Marshall was interviewed in this video by the Alliance to Advance Patient-Centered Cancer Care about her project.
