Christopher J. Gonzalez, MD
HRSA Health Equity Research Fellow
What I would like to offer as a collaborator…
My research focuses on understanding how socio-cultural behaviors and networks can be leveraged to address disparities in obesity and obesity-related conditions among Hispanic populations. This work utilizes a multidimensional approach through analyses of social networks, socially-mediated behaviors and targeted community engagement.
What I am looking for from a collaborator…
I am an Internal Medicine-trained primary care physician that continues to serve a predominantly under-resourced Hispanic community. My research aims to understand and leverage community strengths to overcome systemic inequities, and I look forward to collaborations to advance that aim through the Center for Health Equity. As a first-generation Latino physician, I am also deeply committed to mentorship and the diversification of the healthcare workforce.
