My health services research focuses on identifying novel risk factors for Type 2 diabetes and on testing strategies to prevent diabetes among patients at risk. In a national cohort study of all US veterans treated at a VA facility, we are studying predictors of diabetes including exposure to antibiotics and PTSD among other risk factors. And I lead a NIDDK-funded, cluster-randomized trial of a community health worker (CHW) intervention to prevent diabetes in 2 health care systems. CHW's are lay health coaches that engage, teach, and motivate patients to participate in diabetes prevention programs and provide direct behavioral counseling.
In educational leadership, I lead NYU School of Medicine's General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program and established its Masters of Science in Medical Education program. I was founding Director of the educational core for the Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and directed its Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation program. I direct the new Population Health Pillar in the medical school curriculum and direct courses in Health Policy and Clinical Research Methods.
My policy leadership was launched in 2009-2010, when I was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow in Washington, DC, where I served on the professional staff of the Health Subcommittee of the Committee on Ways and Means in the US House of Representatives. I worked on negotiating, drafting, and passing the Affordable Care Act along with various Medicare payment policy issues. I now serve on NY State’s Council on Graduate Medical Education (COGME) and will soon be appointed to HRSA’s Advisory Committee on Primary Care Training in Medicine and Dentistry.
