Slum Health

Trauma-informed prevention in Informal Settlements.


New Orleans, Louisiana


As global urbanization continues to amplify, slums persist and grow in the world’s diverse cities.

This work primarily focuses on mental health in slum/informal settlement environments but also includes my original work in environmental epidemiology.

I am working in collaboration with universities, global health institutions and civil society actors to address mental health issues in slums. Increasingly, this work also supports spiritual and spiritual care interventions.
