Research Bio

My primary research interests focus on improving parent-provider education, health communication, and healthy literacy in pediatric primary care, particularly for families dealing with childhood asthma. I am currently working on a project to develop and evaluate an educational program to improve asthma care among pediatric residents in the continuity clinic setting. I am also actively involved in several clinical quality improvement efforts in the continuity clinic setting to improve delivery of guideline based pediatric care.
