In addition to co-leading our research section and fellowship program, Dr. Wee is also Director of the Division's Health Services and Behavioral Research Program in Obesity and Co-Director of the Health Behaviors Research 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, including a study of the role of race on health outcomes associated with obesity and 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 (SGIM) 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 served on the journal’s editorial board. She also chaired the SGIM Research Committee.

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 50 students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members. Dr. Marcantonio has authored over 200 peer-reviewed research articles, plus numerous clinical reviews, book chapters, and practice guidelines.
