As healthcare becomes increasingly reliant on technology, health care disparities in access and use of digital tools have arisen. Latino patients with type II diabetes stand to gain from thoughtful implementations of technology for their care. However, currently Latinos are less likely to use patient portals and telehealth. In our group, we focus on digital health equity or the goal to ensure that all patients can meaningfully engage with and benefit from digital health tools, like patient portals, telehealth, artificial intelligence, and continuous glucose monitoring. We would love to work with students passionate about health equity, digital health, or language barriers in care. The student join would join a team of research assistants, data analysts, machine learning experts, diabetes clinicians, and statisticians dedicated to this work. We would support students in completing their scholarly project and meeting their educational and career goals. Educational goals could include experience with qualitative methods, data science, or human-centered design. We encourage interested students to reach out with any questions.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
