Thomas C. Keyserling, MD, MPH is a Professor in the Division of General Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology, Department of Medicine, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been responsible for much of the design, implementation, analysis, and report writing for multiple NIH- and CDC-funded randomized trials evaluating behavioral interventions to prevent or reduce morbidity from a variety of chronic diseases, with a major focus on interventions to reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, promote weight loss, and improve diabetes self-care. These trials have included interventions given by physicians at primary care practices, nurses at county health departments, nutritionists and community health workers at churches, health counselors at community health centers and health departments, and, more recently, web-based interventions. In addition to research activities, Dr. Keyserling is an active primary care internist at the UNC General Internal Medicine Clinic.
