Community Focused Health Analysis

Population data on disease within a particular geographic region is critical to both clinicians and health systems. It helps inform strategic decisions on how to tailor services to particular patient population. This project would describe and analyze rates of disease incidence within a specific community of interest and provide ideas for targeted solutions.

How Does Aristotle Inform Decision-Making at the End of Life in the U.S. Healthcare System?

All medical decisions are grounded in moral values, and clinicians ought to have an ethical framework to guide their decision-making process. This project will apply principles of Aristotle's seminal work, Nicomachean Ethics, to topics of end-of-life decision-making such as artificial nutrition, code status changes, and brain death.

How has Modern U.S. Religion Evolved?

Understanding recent trends in U.S. religion is critical to providing culturally-tailored services in both healthcare and other nonprofit fields. This project will analyze both publicly available data and key texts to describe recent trends in religious affiliation and identity.
