Community Engagement

Community Partners

I serve as a member of the Phoebe Institute on Aging Advisory Board Member and on the scholarship subcommittee. Phoebe has several initiatives to support those in later life, their families, and their caregivers. This includes an annual conference. Check out the conference details here.

I am currently collaborating with Dr. Autumn Kieber-Emmons (MD, MPH; LVHN Family Medicine), Jaskaran Grewal (Lafayette College '23), and Narena Nerahoo (Lafayette College '24). In this project, we are exploring cervical cancer disparities In the Lehigh Valley. 

I have collaborated with the Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) Leonard Park Pool Institute for Health. Dr. Samantha Shaak, Director of Community Innovation and Evaluation at the LVHN Leonard Pool Institute for Health, has visited my classes to discuss their initiatives. Some of my students have also done summer internships with LVHN Community Health.
