Adam Carle, PhD, MA, is a nationally recognized expert in children with special healthcare needs (CSHCN) and child health measurement. His publications have employed structural equation models, multilevel models, and contemporary test theory to advance the methodological science used to identify CSHCN, investigate the correlates of CSHCNs’ and their families’ well-being, and provide data for evidence-based practice and policy. His work also seeks to better understand individual and contextual variables’ influences on health and health disparities at individual, local, state, and national levels. He became an Ambassador four years ago to help bring PCORI’s patient-centered research mission to child health research. He is hopelessly devoted to his wife (Tara) and daughter (Lyla), who provide his foundation and inspiration daily.
