My primary teaching areas are the community health worker (CHW) certificate and concentration courses, the health education concentration and the public health internship course. My research interest is around the CHW role and scope of practice. I am also currently working on a lice education program with a local elementary school.
I have an active role in the Minnesota CHW Alliance and am co-chair of the Education Committee. I am also active in the CHW section of the American Public Health Association and is a member of the CHW Section Policy Committee and Education y Capacitación Committee at the national level.
