Project Description

I study how social factors such as income, education, race-ethnicity, and sexual orientation influence adolescent health behaviors and health outcomes. My postdoctoral projects at the Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre (UBC School of Nursing) focus on tracking health disparities and protective factors among ethnoculturally diverse lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth to inform culturally relevant interventions for families.
