My research emphasis is theory-based intervention studies to enhance cognitive/psychosocial factors that impact health behavior and outcomes in children and adolescents with diabetes. I have conducted several funded projects in the areas of instrumentation, program development and evaluation, and survey designs. Most recently, I have been conducting online education-counseling intervention studies regarding reproductive health and preconception counseling in adolescent and young adult women with diabetes.
