Research Summary

My work focuses on understanding and improving the quality of health service delivery for patients with chronic conditions (non-communicable diseases- NCDs). Internationally (with primary focus on Uganda), my main areas of current focus include the intersection of mobile health and self-care of NCDs, clinical integration of HIV/NCD services, and access to essential medicines for NCDs. Domestically, my main areas of focus are on interprofessional care delivery for chronically ill patients in the hospital setting. Additionally, I work on developing innovative quality improvement education for health professions trainees domestically and internationally.
