Christine Vinci, Ph.D.
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute
Dr. Vinci is an Assistant Member in the Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior at Moffitt Cancer Center. Her research focuses on developing and testing behavioral interventions that address cancer-risk behaviors (e.g., tobacco, alcohol use) and stress management. To date, most of the interventional research she has conducted is specific to mindfulness-based interventions and strategies, with a primary focus on mHealth and underserved populations. Her recently funded NCI R01 will test the efficacy of a mindfulness-based intervention compared to two other treatment conditions among caregivers of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients. This study aims to examine the impact of a mindfulness intervention on caregiver burden, patient distress, and patient healthcare utilization. Dr. Vinci first became interested in this particular line of research when she learned about the high level of stress experienced by this population. Her research with mindfulness in other domains provided the foundation for the development and testing of a pilot mindfulness intervention for this caregiving population, which ultimately led to the ongoing, larger trial.
