The goal of the proposed research is a comparative effectiveness trial evaluating the efficacy of two approaches for implementing the current recommendations including motivational interviewing with and without health information technology compared to standard care. I have extensive experience managing multiple-site, longitudinal research studies. I have directed a federally funded study examining the use of health information technology in the assessment/treatment of childhood overweight/obesity. I have worked with the recruitment and retention of 24 school based health centers in 6 states, supervised staff, organized training materials for the study and supervise training sessions, monitor the budget and order supplies. I also have experience with a federally funded longitudinal study of the intergenerational transmission of alcohol and substance use in families. I also assisted in the development of the cognitive battery and reviewed/selected other measures for Wave 6 of the longitudinal study, supervised and conducted interviews; hired, trained and supervised interviewers, trained staff on the use of computerized surveys, diagnostic interviews, and cognitive tasks, scored/processed cognitive tasks, conducted analyses of previous and current waves of data using statistical packages SPSS, M-PLUS, and the R Program and prepared and submitted manuscripts for publication. In summary, I have a demonstrated a record of accomplished and productive research projects in an area of high relevance to this project, and my expertise and experience have prepared me to direct the proposed project.
