Diabetes prevention, Informatics, Epidemiology, Behavior adherence

Summary of academic interest:

My interests incorporate a background in primary care, behavioral medicine and epidemiology with a newer focus on health IT. Drawing on this foundation, my primary project seeks to implement new pathways for preventing chronic disease in primary care settings. This NIH funded study, termed ADAPT, is building a new electronic medical record (EMR) based tool designed to promote effective diabetes prevention counseling in primary care. Other active projects include a NIH sponsored planning grant to design a primary care based education curriculum that trains providers in the understanding and application of new genomic (diabetes and cardiovascular) risk data and an AHRQ funded project to integrate clinical prediction rules into the EMR. I also maintain an active research interest in cardiovascular medication adherence and cardiovascular epidemiology using datasets such as NHANES, MESA, Kaiser Permanente and Framingham.
