Dr. Tucker-Seeley’s substantive research interests are in three 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 concepts and health outcomes across the cancer continuum.  Second, Dr. Tucker-Seeley is interested in the measurement of the neighborhood environment in population health 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.  Third, Dr. Tucker-Seeley is interested in measuring and reporting health disparities, and efforts to reduce health disparities and create health equity across levels of government (local, state, federal).

Starting in September 2017, Dr. Tucker-Seeley will spend a year in  Washington, DC in the National Academy of Medicine and Robert Wood  Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellowship (see announcement).
