Statement of Research Interests:
My research is designed
to help us understand social influences and cognitive factors that affect
beliefs about health. The overall goal is promote preventive behaviors and
decrease those that are destructive to health. I am especially interested in
knowledge of, and social and ethical issues surrounding family health
information. I also collaborate with colleagues in the Division of Cancer
Prevention at Roswell Park Cancer Institute on research designed to correct
misinformation about tobacco and nicotine products among both smokers and
nonsmokers, and hold a secondary appointment in the Dept. of Social and
Additional interests are in community
interventions, methodological issues, stress, and emotional development. I also
put my research skills and interest in public health policy to use through
involvement in the Near East/West Side Task Force and its Health Subcommittee,
and on the Love Canal Medical Fund Board of Directors and Research Committee.
