Promoting Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors to Address Obesity Related Complications of African Americans with Severe Mental Illness Using Peer Navigators

Project: Research project

Description

As part of the Promoting Healthy Lifestyle Behaviors to Address Obesity Related Complications of African Americans with Severe Mental Illness Using Peer Navigators study, I will help the research team make sense of the economic impact of the combined BWLI and PN program. I will look at the cost-effectiveness of the combined program and will analyze the incremental cost of the program (over and above the cost of treatment as usual), relative to its incremental benefits. I will take a lead role in conducting the Cost Effectiveness Analyses, and to assist with interpreting and disseminating the results.
