While she was a graduate student, she dedicated a lot of her time doing research on chronic diseases and participating in health promotion initiatives at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System. There, she worked on a project centered on increasing awareness of heart disease risk among women veterans, and helping to build health education courses that were targeted specifically for them. The other project was using the VA data to fill gaps in the knowledge on Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma.
