Community and Behavioral Health: Research

The main focus of divisional research has been on health behavior, specifically designing and/or implementing interventions to promote healthy behaviors, including chemoprevention and lifestyle modification clinical trials.  Major components include cancer control (breast, colorectal and prostate) and women’s health (cancer, CVD and osteoporosis). Another focus has been educational research, specifically competency-based education at all stages of the continuum (medical student, GME, CME). We have one of the original forty NIH Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Clinical Centers, and one of the four CDC demonstration projects for colorectal cancer screening.
