Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Rudisill is a health economist who conducts applied research related to health behaviors. She examines individual decision-making regarding health-related behaviors, in particular treatment choices and preventative behaviors in the face of risk such as using financial incentives with patients in primary care and prevention settings, seeing how risk perceptions impact vaccination uptake and understanding how people behave in the face of health-related risks such as avian flu. She is also interested in how economic evaluation can play a role in coverage decisions in health systems worldwide particularly when it comes to diabetes and obesity-related interventions such as bariatric surgery and weight loss programs.
