What gained you interest in the NIH?
The NIH is the health research pioneer for the American people! Even as a little fish in a humongous pond, your contributions add to the important work being conducted to better all of humanity. The work done on minority health, health disparities, HIV, substance abuse, and mental health are areas that are stellar and attracted me to the NIH.
What kind of work do you do at the NIH?
I am a Health Science Policy Analyst who studies minority health, social determinants of health, issues surrounding access to appropriate healthcare, health disparities, and health inequity. As part of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities I help support the Institute's scientific vision and provide input on how minority health could improve and health disparities reduced.
