The professional development of graduate students is a priority for me. Reflecting this, I have directed the doctoral research of 19 Ph.D.'s. These alumni went on to obtain research center directorships, distinguished postdoctoral fellowships, tenure-track faculty positions, high level corporate positions, clinical positions, and research and clinical positions at medical centers. I am interested in collaborating with students on research focused on health promotion and prevention especially in relation to the health of women, adolescents, racial and ethnic minorities, and economically disadvantaged individuals. Current projects include 1) Tailoring interventions to improve health and reduce health disparities , 2) Improving doctor-patient interactions and health communication, 3) Improving adolescents' and women's health, and 4) Health promotion in work settings.
