Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My research has focused mainly on health literacy, the ability for people to obtain, read, understand, and use healthcare information in order to make appropriate health decisions and follow instructions for treatment. As such, one of my studies focused on Implantable Medical Device websites which were found to not only be too complex, but devoid of many behavioral theory constructs to educate or empower people to make informed decisions.
Currently, I am working on a study with Meals on Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County, Texas, to validate a health literacy screening tool for the homebound population over age 65. This will allow providers to spend more time coaching people and engaging them with appropriate health and nutrition resources to maintain their health and wellness. Subsequently, they will be better able to remain in their own homes as they age.
