Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am the principal investigator and SECU Foundation grant recipient of the MyHealthEd project aiming to reduce rates of teen pregnancy and STDs among students in rural North Carolina through an online sex education course. As a former high school educator, I am particularly interested in bridging the research on health disparities and educational inequalities while increasing access to high quality health education for all.
