Rina S. Fox 

Rina S. Fox (rsobel@ucsd.edu) graduated from Tufts University in 2007 with a B.A. in Psychology and Spanish.  After working in a health literacy research lab at Northwestern University for three years, she developed an interest in the psychosocial aspects of chronic illness.  Her work with Dr. Malcarne includes assessing mechanisms for coping with the stresses of chronic illness, diminishing cultural health disparities, and psychometrics.  She is also particularly interested in the relationship between sleep and fatigue in cancer, and will be examining this relationship in her dissertation project.
