    My primary area of research has focused on cardio-metabolic diseases and cancer prevention for the underserved, minority communities. Since being appointed as a junior research faculty member at CDU, I have participated in several research studies, and authored/co-authored a number of research articles concerning the prevention and improvement of primary care services for under-privileged patients suffering from chronic diseases.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
