June 23, 2021 by School of Medicine Webmaster

In May 2021 Cindy Orange became the Research Coordinator for the Apps Reaching Cancer Survivors (ARCS) national trial for The University of Virginia’s Behavioral Health and Technology team in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences. The ARCS project works specifically with breast cancer survivors dealing with anxiety and depression to improve mental health through an online smartphone app program and coaching.

Before coming to UVA, her work experience in education as a Curriculum & Instruction specialist included developing, leading, and guiding evidenced-based and data-driven curriculum and assessments for process improvement and engagement in Science, Math, and English departments. She has developed and implemented solutions for school-wide engagement and behaviors using project-based learning models and personalized instruction with technology in schools across Virginia. Finding the perfect fit for her management skills and passion to help others, Cindy is happy to serve as project/research coordinator to bring exceptional care to the patients and the research within the CBHT. 

Outside of the office, she can be found cheering on her daughter at the soccer field, at Lowe’s planning her next DIY project, making care packages for her two college-aged children, or exercising at the gym. Cindy enjoys yoga, hiking, kayaking, skiing, swimming, and spending time with family.
