Dr. Mary Ann Sevick’s research involves the use of technology to engage clinical populations in self-management and lifestyle behavior change.  Her research involves both primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, and secondary prevention in those with complex chronic diseases (including diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and end-stage renal disease).  She has extensive experience in randomized clinical trials. She has served as the PI on 3 NIH-funded R01s:  ENHANCE (a lifestyle management trial in those with type 2 diabetes), and BalanceWise (a dietary sodium reduction trial in hemodialysis patients), and the Diabetes Healthy Hearts and Kidneys Studies (a currently funded investigation of alternative technology-supported intervention approaches for engaging obese, diabetic patients with concurrent chronic kidney disease  in multiple lifestyle behavior changes). She also served as the PI of the VA HSR&D-funded Merit study, VA-STRIDE Study (a physical activity intervention in primary care Veterans). She is currently PI of the PersonalDiet Study, a Program Project of the American Heart Association (AHA)-funded Strategically Focused Research Network on Obesity.
