Health Equity/Research Interest

My research interests involve the promotion of health equity in underrepresented populations through cross-sectoral partnerships. I am also interested in the implementation of inclusive and culturally competent health education, communication, and promotion to advance health.


I am currently pursuing a Master of Public Health (MPH), specializing in infectious disease. This program has equipped me with a variety of skills to assess and develop strategies needed to mitigate health issues. As an individual interested in pursuing a medical degree in the near future, through the Cornell Center for Health Equity, I hope to broaden my skills related to culturally competent care and research, reducing social determinants, and overall promoting health equity.
