Anthony Joseph Viera
Professor of Family Medicine and Community Health

My major area of research is cardiovascular disease prevention. I am particularly interested in improving detection and control of hypertension. Since assessment of blood pressure begins with measurement, my studies often include out-of-office BP measurement techniques including 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring and home BP monitoring.

I am also interested in obesity prevention, and in another line of research am examining the effectiveness of food labeling policies (such as calorie-labeling) on people's food and physical activity decisions.

As a family physician, I enjoy providing full-scope primary care (acute care, chronic illness care, preventive services) to patients of all ages and from all walks of life.

Current Research Interests

My current research interests include methods for improving detection and control of high blood pressure. Broadly, I am interested in prevention of cardiovascular disease.
