Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

I am a joint Master’s degree candidate in Social Work and Public Health. I am also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Burkina Faso, 2012-2014). My academic and community work have focused on reducing health disparities, improving access to maternal and child health care among transient populations, and decreasing violence and firearm
injuries in Baltimore City. I have a keen interest in fortifying public health infrastructures by explicitly linking and aligning health care delivery systems with community resources and social services.
