I particularly value the learning interactions with students when we together test, implement, evaluate, and disseminate community-based, health promotion initiatives.

As a teacher and researcher it is my privilege to create a learning environment, whether it be in the field or in the classroom, for students to receive guided feedback on research ideas and intervention strategies to create positive changes in population health. I particularly value the learning interactions with students when we together test, implement, evaluate, and disseminate community-based, health promotion initiatives. I teach in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural setting that fosters opportunities for everyone to build professional capacity to address complex health issues. The students inspire me every day as we work together to create a culture of health.
