Maryam Gholami, PhD
Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute,
UC San Diego Health
I am passionate about designing, evaluating, and implementing digital health tools (e.g., health apps, self-monitoring devices, digital therapeutics) in the community and underserved populations to alleviate chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart diseases, and cancer. I am especially interested in working with health systems in implementing digital health treatments that simultaneously or sequentially target multiple health behaviors/problems (e.g., physical inactivity, nutrition, chronic disease management, clinic visits) to create healthy lifestyles and maximize quality of life in the population.
I have over 10 years of experience in designing, implementing, and evaluating chronic disease prevention programs in children as well as middle aged and older adults. I am managing the UCSD the CDC Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) for UCSD faculty and staff who have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes, and I am collaborating in evaluating the implementation of the UC DPP programs across 10 UC campuses. I am working on the implementation of digital health solutions in the Family Health Center San Diego, and am co-investigator in several health related projects as implementation science expert.
