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 Preventive Medicine.

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.
