Areas of Research

The causes, similarities, and differences of blood donation among cultural, religious, and socio-economic groups. Due to blood shortages, there is always a demand for blood donation and an increased request for blood donation from minority groups. For example, blood types O and B (present in about 70 percent of African-Americans) are the most in demand and are the first to run out during a blood shortage. Moreover, some minority groups have rare blood types like U-Negative or Duffy Negative. The data will provide useful insight for blood donation education and promotion among under-represented minority groups. Pathology Graduate Medical Education (Medical school Pathology curriculum and Pathology career choice). I am currently performing a nationwide study on Pathology residents and the satisfaction with their career choice. The data will be used as a baseline and as an aid in career advising for future Pathology residents and medical students interested in Pathology as a career. Interests in Undergraduate Medical Education varies and includes a) undergraduate basic science curriculum, b) student learning styles and academic progress, c) student diversity, cultural similarities and differences in osteopathic medical education.
