Academic Interests:

I am interested in how health and health care are influenced by cultural, ethnic, gender and class variations, and how we learn from these variations.  I am interested in how power influences knowledge, how individuals and organizations change and in creating learning experiences that encourage and support many ways of knowing. I am committed to participating in and promoting as fully as possible collaborative learning environments.
