This work is anchored upon the goals of eliminating health disparities and strengthening community resilience through the lens of social determinants.
Early-stage projects involve development of community mental health workers in post-hurricane Puerto Rico; supporting primary care mental health collaboration in the Dominican Republic; and addressing maternal and children-under-5 mortality in the southern Philippines through midwifery education, vaccinations, and service partnerships with government, medical, academic, and community institutions.
