Research Interests
I am interested in assessing patients’ satisfaction of their genetic and medical care and working toward improving healthcare delivery. In addition, I would like to assess different healthcare delivery models (e.g. group counseling or education sessions, telemedicine) to address the need for more patient education in the realm of genetic conditions and genetic testing, and offering support services.
