In an effort to alleviate health disparities and inequities, one of my long-term goals is to direct a Community Wellness Center for low-income persons, geared specifically toward minorities. This trajectory commences with adequate research; I believe my placement in the Center for Research and Training Enhancement (CREATE) program would present me with an opportunity to attain supplemental knowledge to better communities. Subsequently discussed are examples of my motivation and self-initiative in the areas of research and public health. Therefore, gaining more knowledge in primary data collection/analysis, and successfully develop/submit a publication to disseminate my research findings.
