My research to date has focused on health status and health behaviors of vulnerable populations. As a clinician, I have found that the barriers for vulnerable children and families to accessing behavioral and mental health services are particularly vexing and will be focusing my research in this direction. As a Robert Wood Johnson General Academic Pediatric Fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I have developed research on health services and epidemiology. At the University of Maryland for 30 years, I have participated in clinical and community-based research projects, all serving minority and underserved populations. Projects have included: prevention of HIV risk behaviors in adolescents, screening for psychosocial risk in parents of young children, new infant formula trials and vaccine efficacy studies. With Dr. Howard Dubowitz I assisted in the development and national dissemination of SEEK (Safe Environment for Every Kid). I was a founding member and continue to serve on CORNET (COntinuity Research NETwork), a national organization performing clinical research in pediatric teaching practices. I have been the continuity director at my teaching program since 1988 and proactive in incorporating research and implementing evidence-based guidelines into the resident training program. As a site champion, I have successfully completed participation in several CORNET studies and have involved other faculty members and many residents in those projects. I serve on the Academic Pediatric Association (APA) Continuity Special Interest Group (SIG) Task Force, facilitating the flow of information among pediatric continuity directors across the country. I participate in an interdisciplinary referral practice in which we evaluate children with growth faltering (Failure-to-Thrive). I am the primary pediatrician to a panel of patients in our large teaching and clinical practice. I also serve in the department's Education Division. I lead the Primary Care Pathway, a program that allows for educational individualization for residents interested in in primary care practice.
