I am continuing to conduct clinical intervention studies for persons with chronic brain injury, dementia and psychiatric disorders. In these studies we examine improvement outcomes for person with disabilities and well as caregiver burden and health. The immediate aim is to adapt family based interventions for patients with brain injury, dementia, and schizophrenia and their caregivers. Current studies on traumatic brain and mild cognitive impairment are funded by the Department of Defense and the Alzheimer’s Association, respectively. I am also the principal investigator on the Spokane Heart Study, a 15 year naturalistic study on behavior, lifestyle, and coronary heart disease development (coronary artery calcification).
