My current research program focuses on studies that will inform ways to improve the quality of health care among adolescents and young adults with chronic conditions. In order to best design programs that can help these YSHCN, my research has focused on epidemiologic studies of health care utilization and health care needs. My work has focused on interventions that will assist YSHCN transition from pediatric to adult health care. I have focused my interventions within the primary care setting as well as in subspecialty care (Cystic Fibrosis and Diabetes). Additionally, I work with community partners around the Bay Area to help develop mechanisms to improve the care of persons with disabilities in the community.
