My New Connections Experience
I applied to New Connections to further explore the connections between community development, changing neighborhood demography in urban areas, and the role of community health centers. It has allowed me to expand my understanding of public health challenges facing low-income and working class urban communities.
My work and research focuses on neighborhood revitalization, race and class, immigration and local economic development. Increasingly, I have been examining how these areas interact with issues related to public health
