    Personal Statement

    I have been invited to serve on the Deep South RCMAR Scholar Advisory Group. I am qualified to serve in this capacity for the RCMAR in that I am both a graduate of the Health Disparity Research Training Program and a recipient of the Deep South RCMAR Health Disparities Research Pilot Grant Award for 2010-2011. I have benefitted from the mentoring from senior investigators in the RCMAR and the opportunities to present my research findings during supported meetings and symposia and have also benefitted from the mentoring from external experts invited to the meetings. I have also developed other collegial relationships with other Deep South RCMAR scholars and as I am currently serving in a leadership role in the Atlanta Regional Geriatric Educational Center (ARGEC) collaborative program as a team lead for geriatrics education I possess the skills and have the experience to advise the RCMAR in the above stated capacity.
