Research Interests

The goal of my program of research is to promote health equity for vulnerable adolescents and emerging adults. I am currently examining the health care transition experiences of adolescents and emerging adults living with sickle cell disease and ways to promote their self-efficacy and transition readiness. My research interests include spirituality and health in adolescents, self-management of chronic conditions, health disparities and equity, qualitative research, and community based participatory research.
