I work as a medical sociologist with a deep interest in the social and behavioral factors that contribute to health inequities. My current research and teaching considers the collaborative benefits of novel technologies on patient-provider communication. I apply principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR) with innovative models of health communication like shared decision making (SDM) to improve the way individuals, families, and clinicians engage with health and the healthcare system. I also direct the MPH-PHAP program.


Health communication, health behavior, social determinants of health, shared decision making, community-based participatory research, qualitative methods.
