Elena Carbone works in community settings to examine how low-income, culturally diverse populations (adults and children) with limited literacy skills attend to and process health information related to obesity prevention, diabetes management, cancer control, and food safety. She primarily uses a 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.
