Diabetes mellitus and preventive cardiology
Thyroid funtion testing methodology
My research focuses on the psychosocial issues that affect patients with diabetes and those at risk for diabetes. In my work, we are developing and testing effective and practical interventions for patients with diabetes, those at risk, and their partners, to help them achieve better physical health (e.g., control of blood sugar, weight) and quality of life. We are also seeking to understand how depression and anxiety may interfere with the health of diabetes patients.
