Research and Teaching Interests

My research focuses on the work of community health workers (CHW)s in South Carolina. In the past, I have focused on how medical citizenship, social determinants of health (SDOH), and moral economies of care giving-or how morals, societal evaluations of deservingness, and values influence interactions between different communities-have impacted the work of CHWs. I'm now looking to better understand the economic impact of CHWs as CCHA engages with policy makers to create a path to financial sustainability for the CHW workforce in our state.
