My work focuses on vulnerable populations, both in the US and in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently I lead a project called Global Action in Nursing (GAIN) to promote nursing leadership and clinical skill development in Africa. Clinical content of the GAIN project is led by in-country partners and may include maternal neonatal health, cancer risk, and other NCDs. In addition, I work closely with the Institute for Global Health Sciences to explore quality of care in LMICs. I am also affiliated with the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health and the Global Cancer Program.
