Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I currently hold a postgraduate position at the Yale AIDS Program where my research focuses on HIV and substance abuse, particularly in regards to barriers to care and healthcare access. During my public health education, I was able to gain skills in quantitative, qualitative, and spatial analysis that have helped to inform the progression of my work with the clinical database from the Yale Community Health Care Van, a mobile medical clinic.
