One of my earliest career goals was to work in cancer medicine—inspired by a family member’s experience with cancer. I’m excited to bring my background in public health and strong program-management skills to support American Cancer Society scientists as they carry out groundbreaking cancer research.”
As Program Manager, Maddison partners closely with researchers in the Population Science Department to monitor internally led and collaborative research projects. She designs and leads processes and systems to streamline workflows and maximize the impact of ACS research. She also ensures PopSci research projects are on target and shares research successes with both internal and external stakeholders.
Before joining ACS, my research was centered on equity and inclusion in global development, with a focus on health systems and environmental conservation. I designed and led qualitative research projects in Tanzania, Rwanda, Fiji, and Nigeria to inform development programs.
