Associate professor - Master of Public Health
My current research includes the evaluation, design and analysis of health education disease prevention (HPDP) programs. I currently have several implementations of such evaluations. One is called the Iowa Healthy Link program and is jointly funded by the Area Agency on Aging and the National Coalition on Aging.
Other projects that are in various stages of development include the analysis of infant mortality patterns and the incidence of sudden infant deaths, the investigation of ecological factors that impact a community’s health and the use of secondary health data for monitoring of population health.
I am also involved with a study that investigates the relationships between environmental factors that may be contributing to the concentration of water contaminants.
