Research My Research

Research Summary

My research focuses on developing and testing novel models of care and related interventions to broaden access to and improve the quality of care for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and related conditions, and their caregivers. These interventions will translate the evidence for the best clinical practices into innovative models that reach as many patients as possible, and in particular, those patients facing the greatest barriers to care. My work has highlighted the importance of health literacy, medication beliefs, and their relationship to health behaviors in neurology and PD.  

As the Medical Director and Principal Investigator of the Edmond J. Safra Interdisciplinary Home Visit Program for Advanced Parkinson’s Disease, I have the privilege of caring for the most advanced PD patients and uncovering their unmet needs. In doing so, our team is able to design and test systems to connect vulnerable patients and families to care, research, and education. We are currently studying the impact of interdisciplinary home visits on quality of life, caregiver strain, and healthcare utilization. We are investigating use of and barriers

Our team's research has been generously supported by the Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation, National Parkinson Foundation, Parkinson Alliance, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Fund to Retain Clinical Scientists, Feldstein Medical Foundation, CurePSP, and private philanthropy.
