Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
I am a clinically and quantitatively trained investigator, nationally recognized expert in children with special health care needs research (CSHCN) and child health measurement. My publications have employed structural equation models, multilevel models, and modern test theory to advance the methodological science used to identify CSHCN, investigate the correlates of CSHCN’s and their families’ well-being, investigate health disparities, and provide data for evidence-based practice and policy. My work has also addressed identifying and evaluating variation in the delivery of care and policy that influences CSHCN’s outcomes. Additionally, my work seeks to better understand individual and contextual variables’ influences on health and health disparities at individual, local, state, and national levels. I have worked extensively in developing and evaluating pediatric PROMIS measures.
