Sara S. Johnson

Sara Johnson received her B.A. from State University of New York at Geneseo in 1993, an M.A. in Clinical Psychology in 1995, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Rhode Island in 1998.

She began her work at the Cancer Prevention Research Center as a research assistant in 1993 and joined Pro-Change in September, 1998. She has been involved with the application of the Transtheoretical Model to a variety of health behaviors and has expertise in the development of expert system interventions and counselor protocols, measurement development, and data analysis.

Sara's experience bridges grant-funded research, the development of adjunctive interventions for commercial products (e.g., the Nicotrol Patch), and development and delivery of clinical interventions. She led efforts that resulted in Pro-Change receiving funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases to examine the efficacy of population-based adherence and weight management interventions.

Her primary areas of research and clinical interest include multiple risk interventions, weight management, medication adherence, and health behavior change.
