She is currently involved in manuscript preparation and data analysis the Hommel and Modi labs.

    Jamie is also an interventionist on two studies targeting oral medication adherence (TEAM – telehealth behavioral treatment for youth with inflammatory bowel disease; Take-It – clinic-based program for adolescent kidney transplant recipients). In addition, Jamie works in the Small Bowel Clinic and conducts assessments and provides brief clinic-based treatment to children and families pre- and post-small bowel/multivisceral transplantation.

    Rachelle RamseyRachelle Ramsey is a first-year postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management. She completed her PhD at Oklahoma State University and her residency at Cincinnati Children's. Her research background focused on cognitive variables that influence the transactional relationship between parent and child adjustment to chronic conditions. Specifically, her dissertation examined the role of parent and child illness intrusiveness in the relationship between barriers to care and child depressive symptoms. Rachelle is currently involved in grant writing, manuscript preparation, and data analysis in the Hommel and Modi labs.

    Rachelle is also an interventionist on a randomized clinical trial aimed to improve oral medication adherence to anti-epileptic drugs (STAR trial) in children with epilepsy. She previously had experience as an interventionist on the TEAM study, a randomized clinical trial targeting oral medication adherence through telehealth behavioral treatment for adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease. Rachelle also conducts assessment and clinic-based interventions with children following small bowel transplantation.

    After her postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management, Rachelle plans to obtain a position within an academic medical center that would allow her to conduct research and provide clinical services to pediatric populations.
