She also serves as Associate Director of the Southeast Institute for Innovation in Palliative and Supportive Care. Using Community Based Participatory Research, her NIH-funded research focuses on partnering with underserved populations, particularly rural African American communities, to determine effective culturally-based palliative care programs. Dr. Elk directed the first extramural Cancer Control and Prevention Research at the American Cancer Society from 2001-2011; this included establishing a nationally-recognized cancer health disparities program, and forming a partnership with the National Palliative Care Research Center to establish the first palliative care research funding program in the U.S.
