Research Interests
My main health services research interest lies in improving breastfeeding initiation and duration and healthy early infant feeding practices (ages zero to three) as they relate to the continuum of obesity for low-income populations and more specifically, Latinos. My other interest lies in quality improvement with primary care issues such as asthma, second hand smoke and integrated mental health in the outpatient setting. I have published investigations in combination feeding (breast and formula) in Latina mothers as well as telephone support and culturally-enhanced scripted guidelines to support breastfeeding in low-income Latinas; completed secondary database study of breastfeeding and enrollment in the Special Supplementation Program for Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Program. Also, I published the evaluation of an innovative field trip model breastfeeding curriculum that she developed during my time at Children's Hospital Oakland. I was nvited to speak about Planning A Research Agenda for WIC and Breastfeeding by the Institute of Medicine last summer and was thrilled to have my research cited in the Surgeon General's Call to Action on Breastfeeding.
