Received a Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing with a women`s health concentration and geriatric portfolio. I received The John A. Hartford Pre-doctoral Scholarship, Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity (09-11). My interests are: women?s health, health Literacy, cultural competence and older adults.

I am a bilingual/bicultural Hispanic Women?s Health Care Nurse Practitioner and Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing. My research interests in Hispanic cancer health disparities, health literacy and culture stem from my cultural background and clinical experience. Currently, I am a KL2 Scholar, through an institutional Clinical and Translational Science (CTSA) award.
My research is focused on investigating the links between health literacy, culture and language on cervical cancer screening and prevention practices among Hispanics. This research proposal aims to develop and test culturally appropriate cervical cancer prevention interventions for Hispanic populations.
