Alexandra Sleight, PhD
Personal Statement

My goal is to develop and implement holistic, occupation-based interventions to help people navigate the physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual challenges commonly associated with surviving cancer. In particular, I am interested in how we can make these interventions practical, scalable and responsive to the unmet needs of diverse cancer survivors across a range of communities.
