My research focuses on patient experiences related to health and health care. I have 20 years of experience in the design and evaluation of individual health behavior change interventions and health services research, using both quantitative and qualitative methods. My current research interests include understanding patient perspectives related to health encounters, patient education within the Patient-Centered Medical Home, use of EHR/PHR and evaluation of health behavior change interventions.
I received my PhD in Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Michigan School of Public Health and my MPH in Public and Community Health Services from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to joining the faculty in the Department of Family Medicine, I was involved as a Research Specialist in a variety of health services research studies in the College of Public Health and served as Research Director for the Wright State University School of Professional Psychology.
