Research Interests

Cancer Screening Utilization Among Underserved Populations
For over a decade, I have built a multi-method approach research program from the ground up that focuses on systems-based approaches to determining key variables and effective behavioral-theory oriented methods to promote breast and colon cancer screening, particularly among underserved populations.

  • P20 MD004804: An Assessment of American Indian Women's Mammography Experiences - Sub Project with umbrella P20 grant.
  • U54 CA154253: Engaging Diverse Underserved Communities to Bridge the Mammography Divide - Sub Project with umbrella U54 grant.
  • KG 110046: Promoting Regular Screening Mammography in an American Indian (AI) Community in Oklahoma - Sub Contractor.


Teaching

My teaching encompasses didactic classroom, small group instruction and one-on-one mentoring. While teaching, I strive to engender a teaching environment in which students are active participants in their education. I work to identify methods to cover the basics and then lead students in engaging conversations during which they take ownership of the discussion. My teaching interests include healthcare quality improvement, cancer screening and prevention, and clinical practice-based research.
