Many evidence-based medications do not reach the people who need them. In collaboration with health systems across the US, we develop and test interventions to increase appropriate prescribing and to reduce health disparities, particularly for cardiometabolic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes. We use a variety of methods including pragmatic randomized controlled trials, qualitative analyses and mixed methods designs. The following projects are a few examples of our work.


Reducing Ethnic and racial Disparities by improving Undertreatment, Control, and Engagement in Blood Pressure management with health information technology
