Dr. Kreuter’s research focuses on using novel, but practical, approached to eliminate health disparities, primarily by connecting low-income and minority individuals to needed health and social services. Through many community-based studies, he has gained a rich understating of the lives of low-income Americans, the often challenging social and environmental contexts that shape their decisions and actions, and effective ways to reach and engage them around health matters.
