Specialty PCPMedical Providers
Since 1997 Dr. Post has served as the Medical Director for DePaul Community Health Centers which focuses on primary care and preventive services in underserved communities. The majority of DCHC’s grants and research activities have been focused on improving outcomes through changes in care teams and health delivery systems. They have included relatively simple interventions to improve screening rates for cancer (breast, cervical, colon, lung) and infectious diseases (HIV and Hepatitis C), longer term interventions for health-related behaviors (smoking cessation, pre-diabetes, and diabetes, to more intensive team-based interventions for high-risk populations (co-morbid behavioral health, homeless, and intensive care management). Throughout all of these, Dr. Post has integrated students and residents in the design, implementation, and evaluation for those who are interested in population-based interventions and outcomes.
