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.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
