Chair of Family Medicine

Warren Alpert Medical School

Brown University, USA

Bio

Dr. Richardson is a physical activity and diabetes prevention researcher who emphasizes the importance of using low-cost and scalable approaches to promoting physical activity. She develops and tests behavioral internet-mediated interventions to increase physical activity, decrease weight, and prevent diabetes. Focusing on components of web-based interventions that are interactive and individually tailored, Dr. Richardson builds interventions that are more than just static informational websites. They incorporate objective monitoring of physical activity, individually tailored feedback and motivational messaging, and online social support to motivate and engage users. Automated, gradually incrementing and individually tailored step-count goals are assigned to participants based on program progress as they build up their endurance. Dr. Richardson was the Director of the Veterans Administration Diabetes Quality Improvement Initiative (QUERI) and conducted a multi-site implementation study of the Diabetes Prevention Program for veterans.

Dr. Richardson is the Chair of Family Medicine at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University. In addition, she is an implementation researcher studying Type 2 Diabetes management and prevention.
