Research: History, Health Policy, and Ethics: Developmental disabilities; Newborn screening. Health promotion in child care centers. Medical education re communication, attitudes.
History, Health Policy, and Ethics. Our historical research has focused on US health policy towards children, particularly those with developmental disabilities. The underlying premise is that our current public policy can be improved by understanding the consequences of previous policy decisions. In particular, we are exploring the effects of specific medical interventions on the epidemiology of mental retardation; and contrasting medically oriented programs such as universal newborn screening for metabolic disorders to broader anti-poverty programs and disability rights legislation.


Health promotion in child care centers. In collaboration with our network of 50 federally subsidized child care centers, we have explored the health and health care needs of preschool children. In particular, we are trying to show that the child care center is an effective locus for improving asthma care, reducing child injury, and preventing obesity.


Medical education re communication, attitudes. We are studying ways to improve the attitudes and behavior of physicians-in-training, particularly with regards to persons with disabilities.
