About Me

Biographical Statement:
Cathy Peltz has developed a strong background in orthopedic research, epidemiology and patient-centered outcomes research. Dr. Peltz worked in the Bone and Joint Center at Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) conducting orthopedic research before joining the HFHS Department of Public Health Sciences to oversee the All of Us Research Program and focusing on precision medicine and patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR).

This move was motivated by her desire to do cross-discipline research between clinicians and epidemiologists. This approach brings the patient voice to forefront in research projects, the results from which can directly impact and improve the patient’s clinical care. This type of patient-centered research can also increase the efficiency of care by determining what patient-centric factors are related to successful clinical outcomes.

Research Interests:

  • Patient-Centered Research
