Bio

Dr. Sarah Gallups joined Duquesne University in August 2018 as an Assistant Professor at the School of Nursing. Dr. Gallups received her BSN and MPH from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Gallups' scholarship has emerged from her community and public health experiences at the local and international level, with a focus on addressing access to health care among vulnerable populations and promoting more equitable partnerships among patients, providers and communities.

Dr. Gallups is extremely interested in understanding and addressing health disparities and the use of community-engaged research methods in nursing science. Her research has focused on patient navigation in cancer care. Her PhD dissertation, "Identifying the Interpersonal Communication Components of Breast Cancer Care Patient Navigation," utilized a community-engaged approach, concept mapping, to better understand the key interpersonal communication skills and behaviors of patient navigators that promote improved cancer care outcomes.

Additionally, Dr. Gallups teaches Evidence-Based Approaches for Professional Practice in the undergraduate curriculum for senior nursing students.
