As a member of the health psychology concentration area, I have active interests in health services and health disparities research. As mentioned on the Judgment and Decision Making page I have interests in exploring the use of decision aids in cancer screening decisions. These decision aids have not been evaluated in targeted populations and I wish to explore their feasibility in such populations. I have also been involved in community-based, self-help smoking cessation interventions geared for female smokers. While males still outnumber female smokers, the disparity is shrinking and the demographics of smokers are quickly changing. InChicago, we assessed the effectiveness of such a campaign geared at female smokers with no more than a high school education. In El Paso, we developed a website geared for female college students.
