Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: My research focuses on HIV and behavioral health disparities for Haitians. I conducted an exploratory study on hidden practices of Haitian picuristes who provide injections in Florida without having training. This work resulted in several peer reviewed publications. As a Social Worker, I have done community development and counseled Haitian youth and families in Florida. I completed a National Science Foundation funded project on the role of social capital in post-2010 earthquake housing recovery.
