Elizabeth Trice Loggers joined Group Health Research Institute in 2009 after completing a fellowship in the Department of Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Her research while at the Center for Psycho-oncology and Palliative Care Research at DFCI focused primarily on communication and end-of-life care for advanced cancer patients, with an emphasis on racial and ethnic differences. Her position as assistant investigator is a joint appointment with the Clinical Research Division of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Dr. Loggers maintains a part-time clinical practice at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance where she specializes in the treatment of individuals with sarcoma (i.e., cancers of the bone, muscles, nerves, or vessels) and is the Medical Director for Palliative Care.
