Focus of Work
I am interested and involved in public policy as it relates to maternal child health issues such as infant and maternal mortality and morbidity, life course theory and health disparities. The impact of chronic disease on MCH and long term outcomes has been a focus of my public policy work, both through the state MCH advocacy work as well as through clinical and didactic teaching.
