Health Equity/Research Interest
Kristy Richards’ research interests include finding better treatments for lymphoma by using comparative genomics and canine clinical trials to test new therapeutic combinations.
As a physician I have lobbied at both the state and federal level for oral chemotherapy parity laws which is a significant health equity issue facing my patients. I remain interested in issues related to health equity and trying to break down barriers to health care that some of my patients experience. I also am interested in engaging the public in issues related to science and medicine so that they can be active advocates for positive change.
