Research Priorities

Marita Inglehart, PhD, Associate Professor
My research is focused on oral health and quality of life issues, especially in children. Currently collecting data from elementary school children, their parents and teachers in Flint, MI, funded by a grant from NIH. Dr. Inglehart is also interested in educational research that focuses on gaining a better understanding of how to educate patient-centered and culturally sensitive providers who are open to interdisciplinary collaborations.
