Dr. Cheng’s clinical and research interests are in child and adolescent violence prevention, child health disparities, community-based research, teen pregnancy and parenting, and access to care. Early research defined the epidemiology of adolescent injury in the District of Columbia. Current work involves the design and testing of interventions in DC and Baltimore including randomized trials of a community-based violence prevention intervention with adolescents presenting to the emergency department (MCHB), with high risk sixth graders in “persistently violent” schools (NICHD) and a clinically integrated home visitation program with teen mothers (OPA, RWJ). Dr. Cheng has been involved in evaluation of innovative primary care models and policy issues on the future of primary care including the Future of Pediatric Education (FOPE II) project, the Health Resources and Services Administration Advisory Committee on Training in Primary Care Medicine and Dentistry, and the American Board of Pediatrics Residency Review and Redesign Project (R3P).
