Meet the OCEO Faculty Fellow

Lyndsey Hornbuckle returned to the University of Tennessee in 2015 to teach and supervise students in the Exercise & Fitness Promotion Laboratory. In addition, she is currently the co-investigator on an NIH/NCI-sponsored project entitled: “Exercising Together: A Randomized Controlled Trial of Partnered Exercise Training on the Health of Couples Coping with Cancer.” For this project (funded 2021-2024), Hornbuckle is working with principal investigator, Kerri Winters-Stone of Oregon Health & Science University, to launch a community-engaged approach to inform and diversify a couples-based exercise intervention in individuals coping with cancer and their intimate partners. This project specifically engaged African-American cancer survivors and their partners to learn more about their perceptions of and feelings toward exercise/exercise interventions while coping with cancer at various stages. Hornbuckle and Winters-Stone also collaborate with Cristina Barroso in the UT College of Nursing on this work.
