Peter Cronholm, MD, MSCE, CAQHPM, FAAFP is an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (DFMCH) at the University of Pennsylvania, with additional training in biostatistics, mixed methods, and epidemiology. His research interests have focused on mitigating health disparities through health services with attention to: 1) the integration of trauma-informed care and primary prevention strategies into systems of primary care; and 2) developing novel mixed methodologies and patient-centered outcomes into research paradigms. He has developed and currently co-directs Penn’s Mixed Methods Research Lab (MMRL). The goal of the MMRL is to foster the use of qualitative and mixed methods research methodologies with a focus on integrating key stakeholder perspectives and goals into research designs. The MMRL works with investigators to provide conceptual and technical support for community bases and clinical research questions. Qualitative, mixed methods, and action research are uniquely suited to capture the contextual, socio-cultural, and experiential factors that contribute to health disparities.
