Research description

I am wrapping up a pilot project, which was funded by the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Accelerator Monies (RAMs) Award. My project aims to examine the link between the experience of discrimination and weight outcomes (i.e., BMI, waist circumference) among Latinos living in Richmond and the surrounding areas.
