Elena T. Carbone works in community settings to examine how low income, culturally diverse adults and children with limited literacy skills process health information about obesity prevention, diabetes management, cancer control and food safety.
Carbone uses a primarily qualitative approach (individual interviews, focus groups and observations) to collect her data. She is also interested in the use of new technologies to enhance pedagogical practices.
