Health & Life Course
I received my B.A. and M.A. in Women’s & Gender Studies from the University of South Florida where I completed an analysis of a local HIV/AIDS outreach program and the effectiveness of exhibiting cultural competency when reaching out to various racial/ethnic populations. My research interests are community-based studies involving the topics of HIV/AIDS, the intersections of race/ethnicity within LGBT health (with an emphasis on lesbian health), and sexual health decision making among at-risk LGBT youth.
