As Co-Director of the Center for Academic Strategic Partnerships for Interprofessional Research and Education (ASPIRE),  her projects include the development of the No Room for Error© simulation that emphasizes the importance of collaborative care for patient safety, a standardized patient activity highlighting the complex issues involved in the care of children with chronic progressive illness, and involvement in the Train-the-Trainer Faculty Development Program course for Interprofessional Education.
