Linda Larkey, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Dr. Linda Larkey is full professor at the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University and Professor of Medicine/Adjunct Faculty at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. She has been funded as Principal Investigator in over a dozen research grants (totaling over $10 million) from numerous local and national agencies, including five large, multi-year research grants from the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Larkey has highly honed skills in leading workshops designed to help work teams communicate for effective achievement of vision and goals and promote diversity. She teaches individuals "stillness" skills for shifting to grounded, physiologically healthful states designed to boost cognitive function (memory and concentration), creativity, and positive relationship building for achieving results in the workplace.

Her primary research interests are: (a) testing theory-based methods of communicating health messages to underserved/low-income populations, especially Latinos, (b) using narrative “storytelling” methods to promote cancer screening and primary prevention behaviors; and (c) examining mind-body methods of addressing persistent symptoms, such as fatigue and cognitive dysfunction, and weight gain in cancer survivors and older adults.
