Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2017-2018)

My clinical interests are in the areas of women’s health, public health and community health. I am particularly interested in the influence of culture, spirituality and systems on health disparities, and in the role of women as health advocates for the family and in the community.

My educational interests center around creating environments that increase the likelihood that youth from lower socioeconomic and underserved communities will enroll in institutions of higher education. I developed the Summer Science Academy that recruits middle and high school students from underserved communities. The program involves an intensive week on the University campus followed by yearlong mentoring by University students and is is demonstrating success in increasing college enrollment. I also serve as the chair of the Department of Health Promotion and Associated Clinical Sciences at Northwestern.
