    I am currently an associate professor in health education at the University of Puerto Rico School of Public Health and Nova Southeastern University College of Pharmacy. I received a BA from Mount Holyoke College, and MA and EdD from Harvard University.
    I direct the Puerto Rico Mentoring Institute for HIV and Mental Health Research which supports junior researchers. I have published about public health education, mentoring, research capacity building, and sociobehavioral aspects of drug use.

    I am mainly involved in three areas of scholarship:
    • HIV/Health Disparities Research Development and Mentoring
    • Sociobehavioral Aspects of Pharmacy

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
