My research largely employs the model of community-collaborative research and methodologically involves focus groups, oral histories, surveys, environmental sampling and health assessment. We focus on several areas including studies of highway pollution and cardiovascular disease, asthma, the impact of culture, environmental tobacco smoke, motor vehicle related injuries, language on health communication, and the impact of uranium mining and processing on Native Americans.
