Schedule a Vaccination | What Patients & Families Need to Know
One of the main interests of Dr. Butsch Kovacic’s research group is to improve the understanding of how the environment and nutrition/lifestyle modifies chronic disease risk in vulnerable children and their families. Specifically, research has focused on using epidemiologic approaches to identify genetic, infectious, environmental and molecular biomarkers of childhood asthma and cancer using human biospecimens as well as clinical and epidemiological data. Over the last eight years, Dr. Butsch Kovacic has also worked diligently to grow her local community partnerships using community-based participatory research (CBPR)/mixed methods approaches. As a result, co-creating materials to support community members’ health literacy and engage them in citizen science has become a strong focus.
