Clark.Matthew@mayo.edu Clinical Profile


My research has focused on the implementation of behavioral interventions to improve adherence to health behavior change recommendations in medical patients and on strategies for helping patients cope with their health problems. Specifically, I am involved in several funded research projects which are examining obesity treatment outcomes, nicotine dependence treatment, and physical activity interventions. I am also the PI on a four year study which is examining the potential effectiveness of a structured multidisciplinary intervention on improving the quality of life of cancer patients and their family members.
