My scholarship contributes to a body of knowledge that links structural racism to health in a tangible way, identifies opportunities for intervention, and dismantles the systems, structures, and institutions that allow inequities to persist. Some examples of the research projects I’m currently leading or involved with:


  • Confronting Racism in Reproductive Health, Society of Family Planning Changemakers in Family Planning (PI: Dr. Rachel Hardeman)


  • Structural Racism and Income Equality: Associations with Adverse Birth Outcomes and NICU Stays (PI: Amanda Nickel, Children’s Hospital)


  • The Effects of Racism and Discrimination on Children’s Health and Development: Implications for screening and intervention (PI: Alicia Kunin-Baston)


  • Police Violence and Reproductive Justice: Exploring the health impacts for Black Women living in a community where a high-profile event of police violence has occurred (PI: Dr. Rachel Hardeman)



  • Health care workforce diversity and medical student/trainee personal resources and well being: Diversity Supplement connected to the Medical Student CHANGE Study, Funded by NIH NHLBI (PI: Dr. Rachel Hardeman)
