Health Equity/Research Interest
I am a social scientist trained in public health research committed to improving understanding of social determinants of elder mistreatment across diverse social, cultural, and care settings. In particular, I focus on late-life health disparities in the context of violence, mistreatment, and exploitation through the lens of social justice. I am also interested in developing, evaluating, and implementing evidence-based elder mistreatment prevention and intervention programs.
I have prior experience with community education and outreach, with a focus on elder abuse prevention and intervention in minoritized communities. I would like to network with others interested in health equity research and identify opportunities to develop collaborations. I also would like to contribute to policy efforts to promote social and age justice in long-term care and other care settings.
