I use qualitative and quantitative methods on research to improve population health through health policy, environmental modification, community mobilization, and behavior change. Reduction in health disparities through public health action requires evaluation and dissemination of information and effective interventions and policies. Students and faculty in the University and people in the Community are partners to make changes that improve health and quality of life for all

Seattle Quality of Life Group

The Seattle Quality of Life Group works to improve the health and quality of life of children, youth, and adults by:

  • advancing the development, acceptance, and use of self-reported measures of health and quality of life
  • collaborating with groups who endure health and quality of life disparities because of persisting health conditions, stigma, or unequal opportunity
  • conducting literature syntheses, research, demonstration, and evaluation projects with state of the art scientific methods to assess health and quality of life of these populations
  • promoting the use of results by decision-makers & the public.
