Academic/Research Interests

Dr. Crabtree has a special interest in occupational medicine, community health, and wellness. Other areas of research include chronic disease management, interprofessional education, and telehealth. She co-developed a community-based program aimed to improve the quality of life of individuals with chronic lung disease.

Students in healthcare-related disciplines gained real-world experience working collaboratively to improve the health outcomes of community-dwelling residents.
