Profile Information

I was raised in Norristown, PA and most recently lived in Northern California
About Me:
I am a medical anthropologist who is very interested in social aspects of behavioral change and human motivation. My focus is chronic disease in the US -- the classic "diseases of lifestyle" such as diabetes and hypertension. I have an educational background in public health and much work experience in medical education so thinking about these issues holistically is important to me. I have done research on hypertension management in San Francisco bus drivers and I'm starting a project on diabetes educators in North Texas. I'm also interested in "the social lives of immune systems" (borrowing from the title of James Wilce's 2003 book); I think the social aspects of behavior change is related to this.

Hallo- I've been alerted that you may be the mystery chef that brought the UBERDELICIOUS berry/greens salad to the Henry house during orientation. If so, would you be willing to share your recipe? I absolutely LOVED it!!

Sorry, Sherri, I love taking credit for good food, but that wasn't me. I brought the coleslaw that had roasted pumpkin seeds in it....
