Dr. Schwartz's main clinical and training interests are: neuropsychological assessment of children with chronic illness, psychosocial screening of children with newly diagnosed chronic illness, and interventions to prevent or reduce medical nonadherence. His research is closely tied to his clinical work. His research is focused on 1) the relationship between neurocognitive functioning, chronic illness, and adherence to medical treatments, 2) screening and prevention of nonadherence-related complications of chronic illness, and 3) neurocognitive outcomes of chronic illness. He has a number of ongoing studies related to a new-onset Type 1 diabetes screening program; cognitive and neurodevelopmental outcomes in adult survivors of congenital heart disease; and neurodevelopmental outcomes of children with different genetic syndromes (e.g., Costello syndrome; DK Phocomelia/Von Voss Cherstvoy syndrome).
