My research interests and experience include the intersection of epidemiology, clinical and community initiatives to address racial/ethnic health disparities in the U.S. Through this fellowship year, I hope to broaden my understanding of health science research as it relates to health disparities and how health insurance instability influences the management of diabetes among various racially and ethnically diverse patients. Improving our understanding and characterization of health disparities in the healthcare sector will help shape how we effectively address these disparities.
