Research Overview

My research interests are in Behavioral Medicine and self-management, broadly, and specifically in obesity and other chronic conditions. I am interested in working with InCHIP on a brief, behaviorally-based, weight management program augmented by mobile and blue-tooth technology. I have been the scientific and clinical consultant/facilitator trainer for a medically supervised weight management program (i.e., OPTIFAST) for the past 10 years with about 12,000 participants. This is a program offered in Northern California through Kaiser Permanente.
