About Georita Marie Frierson

I am a licensed clinical psychologist trained in health psychology, and currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Rowan University. I am also the Director of Clinical Training of the newly formed Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology at Rowan University. The two foci of my work with medically under-served populations are in 1) cancer education and control and 2) physical activity interventions or longitudinal designs. I have expanded my cancer survivor research to examine the psychological, behavioral and quality of life outcomes of medically under-served triple negative female breast cancer patients (TNBC; who typically have African American ancestry, BRCA 1 mutation, and/or advanced stage disease).
