Congratulations to Dr. Canhua Xiao, associate professor at YSN, who has been inducted into the American Academy of Nursing. She will be honored at a ceremony to be held during the Academy’s annual policy conference, Transforming Health, Driving Policy, which will take place in November in Washington, D.C. Fellows are selected for their significant contributions to nursing and health care.
Dr. Xiao came to YSN from the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University where she was an assistant professor in the Office of Academic Advancement. Her area of expertise focuses on cancer-related symptoms/symptom clusters and their underlying molecular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms, patient-reported outcomes, and quality of life. She has studied fatigue and the role of anti-inflammatory signaling in patients with head and neck cancer. She completed her PhD at the University of Pennsylvania; an MSN at the First Military Medical University School of Nursing in Guangzhou, China; and a BSN at Peking Union Medical College School of Nursing, in Beijiing, China.
Dr. Xiao’s multiple professional memberships include the International Society for Quality of Life Research (where she is co-chair for the New Investigator SIG), and the Oncology Nursing Society.
YSN Professor Alison Moriarty Daley will also be honored at the same ceremony on November 3. See earlier post about Alison here.
