Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the principal or co-investigator for multiple federal and locally-funded grants related to multi-level interventions (e.g., individual, environmental, policy) focused on the reduction of health disparities and promotion of health equity. I also lead a local and multidisciplinary group with a focus on the promotion of health equity using environmental and policy-level strategies aimed at the social determinants of health. This group authored a community health equity report using GIS and HIA methods.
