My research focuses at the interface of health services research, primary care practice transformation, and health policy. I lead a VA research team conducting epidemiologic studies of novel predictors of Type 2 diabetes among veterans. I lead a NIDDK-funded R18 randomized trial of a community health worker intervention to prevent diabetes among those with prediabetes at VA NY Harbor and Bellevue Hospitals. I am Co-PI of an HRSA-funded project to transform primary care practice at Bellevue Hospital with a team training intervention. I recently led a VA-funded project; PROVE (Program of Research on Outcomes of VA Education), a controlled trial of panel management support and clinical microsystem education to improve outcomes among veterans with hypertension and smoking. And I was recently Co-PI of an AMA-funded project to integrate health system science education into the medical school curriculum at NYU School of Medicine. I have 20+ years of educational leadership, having led NYU School of Medicine’s General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program since 1995. I directed NYU’s NIH Clinical Research Training Program and founded its Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation Program. I directed the CDC-funded Fellowship in Medicine and Public Health Research. I was founding Director of the Translational Research Education and Careers core in NYU’s Clinical Translational Science Institute. I have been PI of three HRSA-funded Faculty Development Programs in Primary Care grants. I am Co-PI of an AHRQ-funded T32 fellowship in Population Health Science and am Program Director of a HRSA-funded T32 in Primary Care Research. I have successfully mentored numerous faculty, fellows, residents and students.
