Bio

Dr. Krieger is a health communication scientist focused on identifying innovative ways to empower patients and their families in healthcare decision-making as well as reduce barriers that contribute to inequities in cancer prevention and survivorship. Currently, her research focuses on developing interventions utilizing virtual clinicians to improve health-related outcomes for underrepresented populations, particularly rural patients. She has 20 years of experience developing and implementing mHealth interventions that utilize precision messaging techniques to reduce health inequities. She has secured over 10 million in research funding, including serving as PI of a large, randomized clinical trial to reduce colorectal cancer screening inequities (1R01CA207689).

Dr. Krieger is a Professor of Advertising and Health Outcomes & Biomedical Informatics and serve as co-leader of the University of Florida Health Cancer Center (UFHCC) Cancer Population Sciences research program and well as founding director of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Medicine) Translational Communication Center. She also co-directs the UF Recruitment Center housed within the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. Her interdisciplinary work is published in a variety of well-regarded and high impact journals, including the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. She is also an Associate Editor for the Journal of Communication, the flagship international journal in her field.

Research

Dr. Krieger’s research program focuses on translational communication in health and risk decision-making contexts. Within this broad framework, she is pursuing three specific lines of inquiry. First, she studies how message design influences health literacy and the cognitive processing of health risk messages. Her research has addressed topics such as the most effective means for framing health risk messages as well as the role of metaphorical language for promoting comprehension of complex scientific information. Second, she examines social influence dynamics in healthcare decision-making, such as how healthcare providers and family members influence patient participation in medical research. Third, she is interested in understanding how interpersonal communication enhances as well as minimizes the effects of mediated interventions.
