Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have studied the impact of race concordance on several health-related outcomes which have been published either as journal articles (forthcoming) or in the form of my doctoral dissertation. I have analyzed two separate iterations of the CAHPS-related survey data associated with this study's population that have spanned a period of seven years. In addition to the aforementioned publications, these analyses have resulted in the creation of several evaluation and policy reports.
