Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a primary care internist and pediatrician, and a health services researcher focusing on health literacy, patient-reported outcomes, and health care quality. I am particularly interested in understanding the life course development of health literacy, the effects of health literacy on individual and family health, and how it can be promoted within families.
