Dr. Davey's program of research considers how different relational and cultural contexts contribute to the experience of health disparities (e.g., cancer health disparities). Three main themes guide her program of research: (1) improving providers’ culturally sensitive and family-centered clinical care; (2) improving collaborative interdisciplinary relationships to target health disparities; and (3) developing cross-cultural training curricula for healthcare providers to reduce health disparities. She currently studies ethnic and racial minority families in which a parent and/or school-age child is coping with a physical illness.
