Community Perceptions of Health Care Access
This project focuses on using qualitative and/or quantitative analysis to assess difficulties accessing health care in different geographic locations. Various factors influence a patient's ability to access health care services, including but not limited to, the ability to pay for care, perceived urgency for care, previous interactions with health care workers, and/or availability of health facilities. Qualitative and quantitative data can be used to identify the motivations behind patients' care-seeking behavior and highlight which populations may be most vulnerable to gaps in health care.
Re-envisioning Maternal Health
Maternal mortality is an ongoing concern for the United States, particularly for Black and Latinx populations who have disproportionately higher rates of mortality. Through interviews with different stakeholders (i.e., physicians, doulas and midwives, and patients), students will share a narrative of the current state of maternal mortality and describe possible solutions from different perspectives.
