Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the principal of multiple NIH-funded grants focused on increasing understanding of the cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial issues that impact condition severity, quality of life, and use of healthcare services of older school-age children and adolescents living with chronic and life-threatening conditions. Among my scientific interests have been the development and testing of theory-driven and evidence-guided school- and community-based asthma health education and counseling programs for children and members of their social networks.
