Active Research Projects
I direct the Deaf Health Lab at RIT/NTID Research Center on Culture and Language. The mission of the Deaf Health Lab is to promote health justice through research and initiatives in health priority areas including but not limited to healthcare systemic barriers, health literacy, family planning, and preventive health.
My research projects generally examine one or more element of reproductive justice (the right to personal bodily autonomy, have children or not have children, and parent the children we have in safe & sustainable communities). Below are the research projects that are currently recruiting participants.
Our collaborator at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Dr. Joseph Panza, worked with us to launch this new survey! We want to know what the community knows about urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
Study on Beliefs of Periods and Period Products
Working with a medical student from URMC, we want to understand deaf and hard of hearing peoples' beliefs on periods and reusable period products.
