My program of science is focused on improving outcomes for those with chronic progressive neurological conditions and their family caregivers.

I am currently leading the Caring for the Caregiver Program at UT Health San Antonio, School of Nursing. The mission of the program is to support the health and quality of life of families caring for their loved ones with Alzheimer?s disease and other dementias. Through extensive work with the community in identifying the strengths and gaps in care, we have developed a program that is responding to the needs of caregivers in South Texas. Using a community-engaged approach, we are building capacity among community stakeholders including people living with dementia and their family caregivers to conduct patient-centered outcomes for better palliative among people living with dementia.

I teach in both the Doctor of Nursing Practice Program and the PhD in Nursing.
