Her dissertation focuses on the elimination in cervical cancer disparities among Korean American women. Her future goals are 1) to promote preventive care practices among underserved populations by reducing gaps between individuals and the U.S. healthcare system, and 2) to build nursing science in the area of health disparities worldwide.
