My research focuses on the causes of chronic diseases, specifically osteoarthritis. I am also studying the causes of injuries such as falls and their relationship to chronic disability. My goal is to help improve our understanding of prevention opportunities in these specific contexts. I have also studied the role of Health Literacy in the context of provider patient communications and its relevance to chronic disease prevention, especially cancer.
