CPHI Adjunct Fellow

Title: Assistant Professor & Faculty Fellow, New York University Silver School of Social Work

Public Health Interests:

LGBT health, qualitative health research, community health, perceptions of health and well-being

Current Public-Health Related Activities:

With a background in social work, I am dedicating to advancing health and well-being in urban communities impacted institutional oppression. I currently partner with a community health center in Brooklyn that offers services in an inclusive and respectful space. Supported by NYU and the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research, we are collaborating on a research and evaluation study examining patients' ideas of health, focusing specifically on LGBT health and queer health politics. I use critical feminist and critical race frameworks in my research, and integrate them into my approach to teaching future social and health services practitioners.
