PhD, RN, FAAN
Dr. Rhee is a Professor at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing. She has established a robust research program focused specifically on asthma in adolescents based on several large clinical trials supported by the NIH. Specifically, her focus has been on developing and evaluating innovative asthma self-management interventions that capitalize on unique developmental opportunities presented by adolescents and cutting-edge technologies that can ameliorate the burdens of the disease. For example, she has developed an automated device for asthma monitoring (ADAM) for adolescents using application of an advanced signal processing technology, which has been patented in the U.S. as a Respiratory Disease Monitoring System. Since then, the device has been successfully launched as a consumer device. She is currently leading a development of two exciting technology-based asthma management aids with collaborators at UT Austin.
