As a research associate at LFA, she is excited to implement these technical skills, as well as her background in research and strategic planning, to support project teams. Sarah is passionate about working with groups who are dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals in underserved populations.
Before coming to LFA, Sarah implemented community health programming that developed tools for providers to communicate and collaborate with patients about health and wellness in rural Humboldt County, a medically underserved area. For her senior thesis, Sarah conducted research examining barriers to nutrition counseling in primary care. She has also worked to evaluate the impact of the Patient-Centered Medical Home model on homeless patient satisfaction at a clinic in downtown Los Angeles.
