Dr. Evelina Sterling Research and Publications

Dr. Evelina Sterling has been researching self-management programs for over 15 years.  The purpose of self-management programs is encourage behavior change by providing necessary information, tools, and support for people living with chronic conditions.  Based on the Stanford Model for self-management, Dr. Sterling worked with Emory University to adapt and evaluate an innovative self-management program designed to effectively meet the specific needs of people with serious mental illness.  This research has resulted in numerous peer-reviewed publications, most recently “Peer-Led Medical Disease Self-Management for Patients with Serious Mental Illness:  A Randomized Trial” in Psychiatric Services (2018).  Dr. Sterling also recently received a 3-year $400,000 NIH grant to develop and evaluate a self-management program targeting low-income African American men with multiple chronic conditions, including both physical and mental health issues.

Dr. Evelina Sterling has been combining her expertise in maternal and child health and mental health to further investigate pregnant opioid users in rural North Georgia.  Pregnant opioid users experience many barriers to appropriate prenatal care and drug treatment.  Living in rural North Georgia creates additional challenges due to severe culture differences and access difficulties that prevent women from seeking services, often due to fear of punishment.  In 2018, Dr. Sterling received a grant from the Georgia Health Foundation to assess these barriers and create recommendations that would assist pregnant opioid users in accessing appropriate care.  Dr. Sterling is also working with a community-based organization called Someone Cares on a $2.5 million 5-year SAMHSA grant to expand behavioral health services and resources to other underserved populations affected by the opioid epidemic. 

Dr. Evelina Sterling is currently researching menstrual health education.  In 2018, she co-authored a research paper entitled “Psychosocial Vulnerability, Resilience Resources, and Coping with Infertility:  A Longitudinal Model of Adjustment to Primary Ovarian Insufficiency” published in Annals of Behavioral Medicine.  She is one of two American researchers selected to represent the United States on a large scale project sponsored the European Union focusing on reducing stigma and improving menstrual health education globally.  In 2018, she was invited to present her preliminary findings and recommendations about state of menstrual health in the United States at the American Public Health Association.
