Congratulations to Kerryn Reding

The Hope Foundation’s board of directors recently voted unanimously to approve additional funding for their first round of 2021 SWOG/Hope Foundation Impact Awards. This grant will advance Kerryn’s proposal:

Cecebot: A Personalized, SMS-Based Conversational Agent to Address Sleep Disturbance in Women with Poor Sleep After Breast Cancer Treatment

This research project, which began with funding provided by the UW School of Nursing Center for Innovations in Sleep Self Management (CISSM), will test the impact of using a conversational agent, named Cecebot, to deliver an intervention to improve sleep in breast cancer survivors.  The intervention was designed and developed to be broadly accessible, and thus is particularly suited for reaching marginalized communities of breast cancer survivors. This project represents a collaboration between SoN faculty, colleagues at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and a local development company.

Also, Kerryn co-author an American Heart Association Position Paper which has been published here .
