Dr. Alyson Moadel-Robblee
Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of the BOLD Cancer Wellness Program
Alyson Moadel-Robblee, Ph.D is Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of the BOLD Cancer Wellness Program, a Psychosocial & Integrative Oncology initiative of the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care in Bronx, NY. She received her doctorate in Health Psychology at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology in 1995 in Bronx, NY, and completed postdoctoral fellowship training in Psycho-oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
Dr. Moadel-Robblee is a clinician, educator, and researcher with an interest in promoting quality of life and psychosocial care for those living with cancer, driven from her own experience of losing her mother to breast cancer when she was a teenager. In 2008, she launched a cancer support initiative entitled the Bronx Oncology Living Daily (BOLD Living) Program which offers *FREE* patient-centered services featuring mind-body therapies, creative arts, fitness/nutrition workshops and peer support and counseling to residents of one of the most underserved urban communities in the U.S.
The mission of BOLD is to promote the holistic care of cancer patients addressing mind, body and spirit among anyone affected by cancer in the Bronx regardless of the ability to pay or where they receive their medical care. An underlying mission is to help reduce ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in mental health care, cancer treatment adherence, and cancer outcomes among this diverse and financially disadvantaged New York City borough.
The BOLD Cancer Wellness Program sample offerings include English- and Spanish-speaking cancer support groups, yoga, meditation, crochet, Reiki healing, dance & drum circle, scrapbooking, jewelry making, BOLD Buddy treatment companions, peer mentors for adolescents who have a parent with cancer, and smoking cessation counseling.
