    Mechanisms of Exercise Maintenance and the Effects of Depression
    Role Description: This predoctoral fellowship supported research and training in the area of social and health psychology. Multiple studies were conducted to investigate motivation and self-regulation of exercise behavior. Both experimental and correlational designs were used to determine the influence of anticipated and experienced affective response to exercise on exercise motivation and behavior, and how this relationship might differ for those with and without symptoms of depression.

    Scalable Architecture for Federated Translational Inquiries Network (SAFTINet)
    Role Description: This multi-state project will allow researchers, health policy experts, payers, and clinicians to better understand the impact of a wide variety of health care interventions on health outcomes for minority, underserved and socioeconomically disadvantage populations. We will assemble a learning community dedicated to the aforementioned populations and build a secure technology to allow authorized and authenticated stakeholders to answer important questions regarding issues ranging from treatment options to care delivery options.

    AHRQ
    SAFTINet: Optimizing Value and Achieving Sustainability
    Role Description: This project seeks to enhance the capabilities of an existing data network, the Scalable Architecture for Federated Translational Inquiries Network (SAFTINet), by improving its ability to answer impactful questions about the best health care treatments and the best way to provide health care, with special emphasis on the poor and disadvantaged. For this project, we will bring together a diverse set of stakeholders with different perspectives regarding health care (e.g., providers, patients, payer, policy experts, etc.,) to inform enhancements to the data network and plan for sustainability.

    The REDIVAC Study - Reducing Delay In Vaccination of Children Study
    Role Description: Interventions to reduce infant under-vaccination are needed to counteract the increasing number of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks. Our intervention is designed to be delivered to mothers during the most critical time in their vaccination decision-making, without placing an increased burden on clinicians or the clinical encounter. Because of this, and the fact that our intervention is web-based, it has the capacity to be implemented on a large scale for relatively little cost, and could therefore become an important public health tool with a substantial potential to reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases.

    Adapting and Implementing Patient Safety Practices in Ambulatory Care: Workflows to Improve Safety and Efficiency in Laboratory Testing (WISE-LT)
    Role Description: The goal of this project is to improve standardization and systemization of laboratory testing processes using a quality improvement-based toolkit to assure patients undergoing laboratory testing in the ambulatory setting do so safely and without harm from laboratory testing mistakes. The primary objectives of this project are: Optimize the practicality and relevance of existing toolkits through iterative review and revisions from patient safety experts, primary care clinicians, staff, and patients; and Implement and evaluate the improved, practical toolkit in two medium and/or large primary care practices focusing the efforts on the most common diagnostic tests—primarily blood and urine tests.
