Description:

Dr. Shulman’s research program is focused on developing and evaluating health services interventions to improve the health and quality of care for youth living with diabetes. Areas of focus include transition to adult care and reducing socioeconomic disparities in care and outcomes. She is particularly interested in developing and evaluating interventions that leverage existing population-level administrative datasets to inform health system change. Currently, an ongoing multi-site study, Bridging the Gap, is testing an audit and feedback-based intervention to improve glycemic control after transfer to adult diabetes care. Another study, KiT (Keeping in Touch), in collaboration with patients and providers, is developing and testing a text message-based algorithm to deliver just-in-time personalized transition education that will help young adults transition to adult care.
