Graduate Student, Human Development & Family Studies (Affiliate)


Research Overview

My research interest is in African-American elders and their families. This interest includes topics in: health disparities, intergenerational relationships, and cultural beliefs. I am currently working with Dr. Shevon Harvey (Department of Human Development and Family Studies) on her research on Caribbean women, diabetic self-management, and social support. We hope to continue the study in CT. I am also assisting her in a future project, measuring physical activity in the elderly using accelerometers.
