Bio/Research

I am a medical sociologist who is extremely passionate about addressing health inequities. As such, my program of health promotion research focuses on improving pathways to health among marginalized populations. I am specifically interested in sexual health promotion, LGBTQ health policy and programming issues (gender and sex-based analyses of cancer prevention, detection, care and treatment), HIV/Hep C/STI prevention (primary and secondary prevention among diverse populations), and access to testing among vulnerable populations (at-risk youth, injection drug using populations).

My primary research objectives are: 1. to undertake applied, policy-relevant health promotion research that works toward addressing the determinants of health that can negatively impact on health, and 2. to improve health outcomes among populations often marginalized by mainstream approaches to, and understandings of, health and illness through community-engaged health promotion research.
