Chandra Y. Osborn, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, Center for Health Services Research, and Program on Effective Health Communication at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Osborn’s research focuses on improving care for racial/ethnic minorities with diabetes, and patients with limited health literacy.
