What I do
I conduct research to examine social determinants of health and mental health disparities among older adults to inform the development, evaluation, and implementation of culturally sensitive interventions to improve their mental health outcomes. I teach research methods, program evaluation, statistical analysis, and macro practice and am committed to motivating more social workers to develop and implement evidence-based services to vulnerable populations.
