Dr. Salsman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Social Sciences and Health Policy at the Wake Forest School of Medicine and the Director of Clinical Research in Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology at the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center. His research focuses on maximizing the health-related quality of life of teens and young adults with cancer both during and after treatment. He does this primarily through three ways: improving measurement of patient-centered outcomes in order to "give patients a voice," identifying factors that promote resilience and thriving, and implementing behavioral interventions to foster psychological wellbeing. Ultimately his goal is to minimize the adverse effects of cancer by reducing stress and burden in order to maximize and sustain healthy outcomes for this vulnerable group of cancer patients and survivors.
