My research focuses reducing health disparities among older minority and immigrant populations by leveraging technology to support patient-centered care and outcomes. As a practicing general internist, I aim to design and test innovative technology-based interventions for primary care that are person-centered and bridge the community and clinical settings to improve chronic disease management in diverse aging populations.
My current research program has focused on developing Photovoice, a participatory methodology, as a technology-based tool for older adult patients in the clinical setting. I have completed a community-based study to explore the attitudes and beliefs surrounding the dietary behaviors of older Filipino adults with cardiovascular disease. In this pilot study, I used Photovoice guided focus groups, where participants use photos to communicate their “food experience” to facilitate discussion.
My current work funded by the National Institute on Aging (GEMSSTAR) focuses on the contribution of food insecurity in diverse older adult patients with multiple chronic conditions, to assess the utility of Photovoice in eliciting patient beliefs and behaviors regarding food insecurity and to assess feasibility, acceptability and potential impact of using Photovoice as a communication and assessment tool around food insecurity within a primary care setting.
In the Photos to Promote Health study, supported by UCSF Pepper Center, I have developed a novel Photovoice intervention to assess dietary behaviors and their contextual factors and to facilitate patient-provider communication on this topic in the clinical setting among older adults with chronic disease.
