Dr. Smith's primary research interests include health disparities and the social determinants of care. These include: (1) studying the impact of race concordance on participatory decision making and exploring variation in the responses offered by the adult respondents of Hispanic children enrolled in North Carolina Medicaid compared to their non-Hispanic counterparts. In the long term, I would like to conduct research that delineates the respective contributions of patient satisfaction and trust on the utilization of health services. Dr. Smith is also interested in prescription drug policy and its relationship to cost, access, and quality. In this context, he would like to conduct research related to medication adherence.
