Gail has been consulting with health professionals for over 20 years. Her expertise is in clinical trials, categorical data analysis and online instruction. She currently consults with medical professionals and faculty from the University of New England, University of Maine, University of North Carolina and Eastern Maine Medical Center on a regular basis. Gail has successfully collaborated with 12 different principal investigators on 15 grants over the last 20 years. As a public health professional she is particularly interested in research that concentrates on affordable ways to get a large amount of individuals to change their behavior in a positive way. Studying the relationship between providers and patients is an effective way to do this as patients with chronic disease visit their health care provider regularly and the provider can use these visits to educate their patients.
