Dr. Kristie Foley earned her PhD from the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in cancer prevention and control at Wake Forest School of Medicine. She studies how to implement and sustain best and promising practices in primary and oncology care to reduce cancer disparities. She is the Associate Director for Population Sciences and Program Leader for Cancer Prevention and Control at the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center. Her research has been highlighted in the Tobacco Atlas and the Fogarty International Center’s Global Health Matters as a model for translating science into practice and policy to address the global burden of tobacco-induced diseases (R01TW009280; R01TW009280). Her work was also featured in the Legacy and Partnership for Prevention guide “Help Your Patients Quit Tobacco Use: An Implementation Guide for Community Health Centers” as ‘best practice’ for implementing smoking cessation support in safety net settings in the United States (R21DA024631). She currently serves as Multiple Principal Investigator of a national, cluster randomized trial to implement evidence-based smoking cessation services within community-based lung cancer screening clinics in 26 states (1R01CA207158). As Chair of the Dept. of Implementation Science, she is committed to identifying solutions that improve cancer health equity that can be adopted and sustained in “real world” settings. Dr. Foley has been awarded grants in primary prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer from the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Center, the National Science Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. She has built a network of scientists and practitioners who, together, work with community stakeholders to implement, evaluate, and sustain evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies.
