Dr. Robbins’ research involves the development of culturally sensitive strategies to meet the needs of underserved, diverse communities. She is investigating service utilization in disease specific areas, such as osteoporosis and lupus, evaluating how knowledge and beliefs mediate utilization of existing services.
Dr. Robbins is currently a co-investigator on a NHLBI-funded Cornell Translational Behavioral Research Consortium led by Dr. Mary Charlson contributing her expertise in qualitative research methodology.
She is also a Principal Investigator on a New York State Osteoporosis Prevention thru Education Programs, NYSOPEP, funded by a five year grant from the New York State Department of Health.

One of the goals of Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, and related disciplines for the benefit of patients. Research staff at HSS may collaborate with outside companies for education, research and medical advances. HSS supports this collaboration in order to foster medical breakthroughs; however, HSS also believes that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists Research staff collaborations with outside companies if the Research staff member received any payment during the prior year or expects to receive any payment in the next year. The disclosures are based on information provided by the Research staff and other sources and are updated regularly. Current ownership interests and leadership positions are also listed. Further information may be available on individual company websites.
As of March 14, 2013, Dr. Robbins reported no financial interest relationships with healthcare industry.
By disclosing the collaborations of HSS Research staff with industry on this website, HSS and its Research staff make this information available to patients and the public, thus creating a transparent environment for those who are interested in this information. Further, HSS’ Conflicts of Interest Policy does not permit payment of royalties on products developed by him/her that are used on patients at HSS.
