Our Team

Over 30 faculty, residents, medical students, and undergraduates at UCLA have been developing and testing this program over the last year with great success, presenting our program at various local and national conferences. In addition, we have partnered with leadership across UCLA Health and with Way To Health, an evidence-based patient engagement platform developed by faculty at the University of Pennsylvania.
