Sarah Allgood, BSN, RN, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholar, is interested in studying the effects of pain on clinical outcomes in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Patients with CF are now living longer than ever. As they age and their CF lung disease progresses it becomes increasingly important to address quality of life. There is a dearth of research in areas such as pain, anxiety, chronic disease coping mechanisms, palliative care, and end of life care for the adult CF patient. Allgood’s primary research goals are to explore the relationship of pain on quality of life and disease progression and the use of palliative care interventions in this patient population.

She earned her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in 2009. Prior to her nursing career, Allgood was an Equine Veterinary Technician and holds an AS in Animal Health.

Allgood currently works as a Research Nurse at Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD where she manages multiple observational and clinical trials for Dr. Noah Lechtzin, MD, MHS and the Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Research Center. Previously, she was med-surg clinical research nurse at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD where she worked with endocrine, GI, and pulmonary patient populations.

Allgood lives in Woodbine, MD.
