She teaches courses on evidence-based practice and population/public health. Dr. Nguyen’s primary line of research focuses on preventing chronic disease, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, among minority populations. Given the challenges many minorities have with health literacy her research also examines the association and impact of health literacy on health outcomes among minorities.
