Research Interests

There are so many parts of public health Emily loves, but her current research interests lie in health disparities, social determinants of health, global health, nutrition and diet, chronic diseases, and maternal and child health. Specifically, Emily enjoys looking at how things like disparities and socioeconomic status affect health outcomes, and what tools and changes we can make to improve these situations.
