Building on the existing talents of our faculty and the principles underlying the practice of the Center for Family and Community Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, our investigators conduct research to improve approaches to the practice of primary and preventive care, emphasizing the evaluation and elimination of healthcare disparities. Our faculty members are conducting research projects focusing on these areas:

  • Health disparities
  • Community-Oriented Primary Care
  • Quality of care
  • Disease prevention and health promotion
  • Women's health: prenatal care, family planning, pregnancy, and obesity
  • HIV prevention
  • Medical student primary care education
