She has collaborated on many Haiti Lab projects, including the Standard of Care project, which she co-leads with Deborah Jenson with Dr. Karen O’Donnell. In this project, Duke faculty and students interviewed community members and healthcare stakeholders in Haiti to understand local conceptions of health care resources, and to strategize on realistic referral processes in the context of health research. This project addresses the ethical issues of gathering sensitive data, such as data on post-traumatic stress, in vulnerable populations.
