Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been involved in several local and international research projects focused on improving health and reducing risk behaviors among racial and ethnic minority adolescents. My program of research is devoted to ensure that these populations have access to evidence-based sexual health assessment, and bio-behavioral HIV/STI risk reduction interventions. I hope that my research and practice will inform policies that shape the healthcare delivery system for stigmatized and disenfranchised populations.
