Anne-Marie Schott is a public health doctor and rheumatologist, with a PhD in public health and a HDR (French post-doctoral degree allowing to supervise PhD students).

Her research was initially focused on the epidemiology of osteoporosis and falls in the elderly with the establishment and monitoring of the EPIDOS cohort. For the past 15 years, her research work has been oriented towards observational and interventional studies on the effectiveness of health services in chronic pathologies, in particular bone and rheumatologic diseases, cancer and stroke.

Her current work is oriented towards approaches aimed at better taking into account the bio-psycho-social factors at play in patients' behaviors towards their health, notably their level of health literacy, as well as the obstacles and existing levers among professionals, in order to improve the communication of essential information to optimize patients' empowerment and capacity of interacting with healthcare professionals.

These programs use observational studies, often combining quantitative and qualitative approaches, and interventional studies conducted in the field, as well as analyzes of large medico-administrative databases.
