Over the last several years, her research has increasingly focused on stated-preference studies to evaluate benefit-risk tradeoffs, patient-centered value, and their application in comparative effectiveness research and clinical decision making.  Dr. Reed earned pharmacy and doctoral degrees from the University of Maryland and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Washington.
