Dr. Leggett's health services research focuses primarily on caregivers of individuals with dementia. Specifically, she examines caregivers' styles of care management and how those styles are associated with health services utilization for their care recipient with dementia and themselves. She has also collaborated with colleagues on a M‐Cubed project looking at care for dementia patients within Michigan Medicine and using LEAN thinking techniques to consider quality improvements related to care for dementia patients.
