Project Title/Research Interests: Social Determinants of Health, Culturally Competent Care, and Health Disparities (e.g. Mental Health, Diabetes)

Linh wants to ensure that all children and families can thrive, particularly Asian immigrants and refugees. She believes she can best serve them by bridging between policy, practice, and research. Prior to her time at UCLA, she provided direct service to and advocated with Vietnamese migrant workers and new immigrants in Taiwan. She then spent two years advocating alongside a statewide coalition of Southeast Asian serving community-based organizations on their health equity priorities. Since 2017, she has been working on a social needs screening pilot at a safety net clinic. Her interests are in social determinants of health, culturally competent care, and health disparities (e.g. mental health, diabetes).
