Though disability universally affects populations worldwide, it is overlooked and underfunded when compared to the attention given to communicable diseases. GANDHI seeks to research disability and its impact on quality of life, and better understand how to improve care for disabled patients, both in hospitals and in patients’ homes.

I am interested in healthcare both in the United States and around the world, and I believe that participating in interdisciplinary research, a staple of Bass Connections, is essential for addressing significant problems associated with healthcare and disability worldwide.
