My research interests are in health communication and its role in health promotion and education, both domestically and globally. My global work examines participatory health communication strategies among adolescent populations related to reproductive health, and health, media, and digital literacy. My domestic research examines how digital technologies and social media can develop health literacy skills among adolescent populations. I am also interested in exploring the application of behavioral economics to the field of health communication as well as leveraging new technologies for interactive health messaging.

Health Management and Policy

Dr. Shattuck’s current work is aimed at understanding services and related outcomes among youth with autism spectrum disorders as they leave high school and transition to young adulthood. This is closely aligned with the mission of the Autism Institute, which is to discover, develop, and disseminate population-level and community-based approaches that will preclude autism-associated disability; and address the needs  of, and improve the quality of life for, individuals with autism of all ages and their families.
