I'm also involved in research at RIT’s College of Health Sciences and Technology's multidisciplinary team entitled Medical Interactive Therapy Research. The focus of this research is on substance abuse, domestic violence, and using medical graphics, and students from different backgrounds to promote overall health and awareness of these issues.
