Laurene Tumiel-Berhalter

Associate Professor - Family Medicine

Laurene Tumiel-Berhalter’s research is focused on patients with multiple chronic diseases and has several goals: 1.) to improve care delivery for these patients, 2.) to improve their self-management and 3.) to reduce the care disparities that exist for this population. She centers her research efforts in underserved communities, where challenges are compounded because of limited resources, high levels of chronic disease and elevated risk factors.
