Public Health Interests:

Women's health, midlife women, ethnic disparity, physical activity, breast cancer, menopausal symptoms

Current Public-Health Related Activities:

My educational background is directly linked to public health, especially ethnic minority women's health. Probably because of my educational background, my research including a current R01 study on midlife women's attitudes toward physical activity has been directly linked to public health. Also, I have been a member of national and international organizations related to public health including APHA and a member of the NIH study sections related to pubic health (especially health disparities).
