Research and Clinical Interests

Dr. Reeder-Hayes is an early career physician investigator with a research focus on breast cancer disparities and the comparative effectiveness of cancer treatments in diverse populations using large administrative datasets and other non-randomized cohort data.  She has previously led studies of race and age disparities in the receipt of sentinel lymph node biopsy, endocrine therapy initiation and adherence, genomic testing, and biologic targeted therapy for breast cancer. She currently leads a study using survey, biologic and medical record data from the Carolina Breast Cancer Study to model multi-factorial drivers of racial disparities in hormone receptor-positive breast cancer outcomes.
