My research interests are (a) attitudes toward persons living with disabilities, including HIV/AIDS; (b) disability primary/secondary impairments of HIV/AIDS; and (c) consumer health in regard to the prevention of disability - specifically Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS. My research utilizes the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) and community-based participatory research (CBPR) I utilize CBPR and methodologies (e.g., focus groups, Photovoice). My research provides the opportunity to impact rehabilitation services, training and policy. I have been a presenter more than 58 presentations and an author on 39 publications. I am on the Editorial Board of the Journal of AIDS Education and Prevention, the Rehabilitation Counselors and Educators Journal, and an Editorial Consultant for the Journal of Applied Rehabilitation Counseling .
