I conduct research in medical sociology, especially in health care utilization, health care behavior and aging, as well as more broadly health across the life course and health policy issues. With some of the CePod faculty and other ASU faculty, I am currently working on a variety of issues related to adolescent obesity. I am also working on projects on utilization of health care services using national databases such as the Health Interview Survey and MEPS, including issues relating to specialty care use and CAM (complementary and alternative medicine). I have conducted research in a variety of topics related to child health, including recruitment into SCHIP (state child health insurance program), obesity and immunization. At the other end of the life span, I am working on projects on arthritis and chronic diseases and end of life care. I also have interests in HIV/AIDS. I am the editor of the Elsevier Series Research in the Sociology of Health Care and co-editor of Health. I am a past chair of the medical sociology section, American Sociological Association, and past secretary of the Medical Care section, American Public Health Association and a Fellow of the American Academy of Health Behavior.
