Meet Sarah Tsai
Research Summary

I am just finishing up a RCT of motivational interviewing in teens with Type 1 Diabetes. Study finished in Sept., 2016 and were are preparing outcomes paper now. We have submitted an SBIR grant for software that will teach motivational interviewing to providers. I will be applying for an R21 in Feb. If I am able to secure funding, this project will involve a multicomponent intervention to improve glycemic control in adolescents with type 1 diabetes. I would like to start a project involving perioperative preparation in patients with pheochromocytoma. This is only an idea, but I would love to pursue it.
