Overview

Dr. Fabius is a gerontologist and health services researcher with an interdisciplinary background consisting of training in gerontology, human development and family studies, and public health. Her research informs aging and disability policies to reduce health care disparities and improve health equity for older adults and people with disabilities using long-term services and supports (LTSS). Her interests are informed by applied, clinical care management experience, where she helped older adults remain at home and delay the need for nursing home care. She is interested in: (1) better understanding networks of care (e.g. LTSS such as home and community-based services and family support) used by older people and how those may vary by race and socioeconomic status, (2) examining the effect of community-based LTSS utilization on quality of life and health service utilization across diverse groups of older adults, and (3) working with communities to understand and improve how service providers, individuals, and families work together to help people make informed decisions about LTSS. She recently completed a two year AHRQ-funded T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research at the Brown School of Public Health. She earned her PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2016.
