Dr. Christina C. Wee is Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Associate Section Chief of Research in the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She is also Director of the Division's Health Services and Behavioral Research Program in Obesity, Co-Director of the Health Behaviors Research Program, and Program-Director of the Harvard-wide General Medicine Faculty Development Fellowship Program. Dr. Wee’s research interests in obesity primarily focus on questions of particular relevance to public health and primary care and can be characterized by three overarching goals: 1) to understand racial and ethnic differences in the costs and health outcomes of obesity; 2) to identify and address the stigma associated with obesity, particularly as it relates to disparities in healthcare and in medical decision-making; and 3) to define and promote the role of primary care physicians in the management of obesity.

Dr. Wee has led several R01 projects funded by NIDDK. She recently completed an R01 funded study to examine the role of race on health outcomes associated with obesity. She is currently the Principal Investigator of a multicenter study to examine patient preferences, decision-making and long-term health and quality of life outcomes associated with bariatric surgery. In addition, Dr. Wee is broadly interested in health disparities and health promotion research and has mentored several fellows in areas such as immigrant and women’s health, cancer screening, and medical decision-making. Her research and mentorship ability is nationally recognized. She is the recipient of a NIDDK-funded K24 Midcareer Mentorship Award, the 2010 HMS A. Clifford Barger Award for Excellence in Mentoring, and the 2011 Society of General Internal Medicine Midcareer Research and Mentorship Award. She was also inducted into the American Society of Clinical Investigation in 2012.

Dr. Wee is a former deputy editor of the Journal of General Internal Medicine and has served on several national scientific review committees. She currently chairs the Research Committee for the Society of General Internal Medicine.

He also leads the Epidemiology Core for the first-ever NIH Program Project focused on delirium. He has broader interests in improving quality of care for elders, and has authored papers on predictors of hospitalization and unplanned hospital readmission, and outcomes of non-cardiac and cardiac surgery in older adults. He also teaches Epidemiology in the Clinical Effectiveness Program at Harvard School of Public Health, and has mentored over 30 students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members. Dr. Marcantonio has authored over 90 peer-reviewed research articles, plus numerous clinical reviews, book chapters, and practice guidelines.
