Personal profile

Research Interests

My work focuses on ways to improve health and healthcare through the efficient coordination of health promotion and disease prevention activities across healthcare and community settings. I am considered a national expert in pragmatic research and natural experiments to improve the prevention and control of diabetes and other chronic conditions. My additional interests include advancing health equity, eliminating health disparities, healthcare provider interventions, quality improvement, cost effectiveness analysis, behavioral economics, and strategies for engaging community members and policy decision makers in the full spectrum of research. I am Director for Northwestern University's Center for Community Health, which is committed to helping cultivate and support many forms of research that improve the health and healthcare of communities in Chicago and beyond.
