    Collapse research overview
    Dr. Miller has developed a line of health services research focused on increasing access to evidence-based sexual and reproductive care for underserved populations. In 2016, Dr. Miller received a K23 Career Development Award that focused on developing and testing a brief intervention for sexually active adolescents in the emergency department. Her team conducted a randomized clinical trial that demonstrated increased sexual health service uptake (e.g., condoms, testing for sexually transmitted infections) for intervention participants compared to control. In a multi-site trial, her team is now engaging specially-trained advanced practice nurses to provide contraceptive counseling and prescribing and referral. Her team successfully built upon their expertise to develop novel interventions to improve access to reproductive care for hospitalized adolescents and women in the community with substance/opioid use disorder. In addition, Dr. Miller serves as an invited member of the NIH Center for Scientific Review Study Special Emphasis Panel, reviewing applications focused on healthcare delivery and methodologies.
