Summary of Work: 

My research focuses on understanding linkages among psychosocial issues, diabetes self-care, and health outcomes. I employ mixed methods to examine the culture and context of diabetes care in Appalachian Ohio. I implement evidence-based interventions (e.g., patient navigation, community health workers, peer support) to address health disparities.
