- Socioeconomic disparities and financial well-being across the cancer continuum
- Conceptualization and operationalization of financial well-being across the cancer continuum
- Measuring the neighborhood environment and the effects of the neighborhood on health and health behavior
Dr. Tucker-Seeley’s substantive research interests are in two areas. First, he is interested in financial well-being across the cancer continuum from prevention to end-of-life care. His work focuses on the measurement of financial well-being as well as investigating the potentially bidirectional relationship between financial well-being and health outcomes across the cancer continuum. Second, Dr. Tucker-Seeley is interested in the measurement of the neighborhood environment in cancer prevention and social epidemiology research. More specifically, his work in this area focuses on the measurement of neighborhood services and the impact of the neighborhood service/retail environment on health and health behavior. Dr. Tucker-Seeley applies these interests to secondary epidemiologic investigations and community-based research with low-income and elderly populations.
