Karen Scherr
Clinical Associate in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health

I am a fellow in the National Clinician Scholar Program and family medicine physician.  My current research focuses on clinic-community partnerships to improve treatment of patients with prediabetes. I plan to pursue a career in academic family medicine to combine clinical care and actionable, policy-relevant research to address disparities in physical inactivity and healthful eating.
