Health Equity/Research Interest
My research interests involve looking at health equity specifically with minority and underrepresented youth and adolescents. As I gear towards applying to medical school, I am interested in techniques and opportunities to ensure that I am culturally competent in both public health and healthcare in general. My interests further include community health interventions and behavioral interventions related to decision making.
My experiences at Miami University (OH) include 4 years of intensive research in the Behavioral Neuroscience Department looking at decision making and risk/reward benefit associated with alcohol/drug use and abuse. This combined with my classwork training as a Public Health major at Miami have equipped me with a wide framework of experiences involving Public Health Planning, Communication, Education, and Promotion, that I hope to advance with membership. Specifically, I am looking to connect with individuals to become mentors as I gear towards applying to medical school as well as mentors to potentially conduct research with while in my time in the Master of Public Health program.
