Maureen George, PhD, AE-C, RN, FAAN

  • Professor of Nursing at CUMC
Profile Headshot


Maureen George, PhD, AE-C, RN, FAAN, focuses broadly on reducing health inequities in vulnerable populations with chronic respiratory disease. Particular areas of interest include community-based participatory research (CBPR) with poor and minority patients and their health care providers to understand how self-management preferences and patient-provider communication (shared decision-making, motivational interviewing, brief interventions) influence treatment choices (adherence). To the end, she uses community-informed strategies to address obstacles to disease control, such as health beliefs, health literacy, and the built environment.

She has extensive experience as a nurse scientist and behavioral scientist designing, testing and disseminating interventions informed by innovative qualitaitve, CBPR and mixed research methods.
