Kerri Winters-Stone, Ph.D., F.A.C.S.M.Kerri Winters

Associate Professor, OHSU School of Nursing
Principal Investigator

An exercise physiologist by training, my expertise is on the use of physical activity to prevent and manage chronic disease. My studies have shown that cancer survivors can benefit from exercise that reverses treatment-related side effects and symptoms. Ultimately the goal of my work is to develop safe, targeted and effective exercise programs that translate well to community settings and clinical practice so that people can make positive lifestyle choices for better long-term health.

Project Director – Exercise Intervention

Since obtaining my Master’s degree in exercise science in 2006, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work as a project director on multiple exercise intervention studies aimed at using exercise to improve symptoms and side effects from cancer and cancer treatment, ultimately improving quality of life for many cancer survivors.  Throughout these studies, I have seen firsthand what exercise can do for this population and am thrilled to continue working on these types of studies as long as possible!


Carolyn BorschCarolyn Guidarelli, M.P.H.

Research Assistant

Born and raised in Portland, I attended high school and college in the area and then pursued a Masters of Public Health degree in Boston, concentrating on chronic, non-infectious disease. Between classes, colorectal cancer screening research, and completing a practicum in breast cancer survivors, I have found my calling in cancer research. I truly believe in the power of exercise and the positive effects it can have, especially on cancer survivors; I am so excited about the prospects of this research!
