Dr. Wamboldt's clinical practice is within the Department of Medicine at National Jewish Health where he specializes in patient-centered, family-friendly psychosocial interventions for those suffering from chronic cardiopulmonary illness.
As Co-Director of the Center for Health Promotion, he leads a very active research program with three major areas of emphasis, all of which examine individual, family and/or social processes in the context of stress, typically chronic cardiopulmonary illness. First are observational and interventional studies examining biopsychosocial factors influencing treatment adherence and outcomes in patients and families dealing with chronic cardiopulmonary illness. Second are community-based projects, in particular studies aiming to reduce health disparities within low-income, racial/ethnic minority, and/or isolated rural communities. Third are projects evaluating systems change within healthcare practices as well as related public health policy.
