Area of Interest
We don’t all have the same chance to live a long and healthy life. In my research, I seek to document, understand, and reduce unfairness in health by building evidence for policy interventions that make a difference.
I focus this work in three areas:
- The health of young people at risk of tobacco use
- The health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people
- The health of farmworkers and farmworker families
Much of work is centered in eastern North Carolina at East Carolina University’s Department of Health Education and Health Promotion.
