|For more than two decades I have focused my research and teaching efforts on women's health.|
Research: Recent projects include a study to characterize the natural history of the transition to menopause and the symptoms women experience during the menopausal transition. This collaborative project with Dr. Ellen Mitchell, "Menopausal Transition: Biobehavioral Models", involves following a cohort of midlife women for ten years with frequent measures of ovarian hormones, stress perception and stress response indicators, and symptoms, as well as annual health updates and daily menstrual calendars.
Another collaborative study with colleagues in Family Medicine and Nursing involves developing a web-based decision aid for women who are considering using hormone therapy for prevention of diseases of advanced age. I am also a co-investigator for the Women's Health Initiative Study, Seattle Clinical Center.
Teaching: I offer courses in Women's Health Physiology, Research Design for Studying Therapeutics, and Women's Health Issues.
Service: I have served as president of the American Academy of Nursing, and the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, and as a member of the National Advisory Council on Nursing Research for the National Institute of Nursing Research, and was elected to the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences.
