Sara manages operations and community engagement activities for research projects at the Viswanath lab. These projects range from community-engaged research that is part of the UMass Boston and Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center U54 Outreach Core to global health projects funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She also supports community engagement efforts in Massachusetts, and has worked on several capacity-building projects that address health inequalities at the individual, organizational, and community levels . Sara holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Boston University with a focus in Social and Behavioral Science and Epidemiology. Before joining DFCI, Sara worked at Boston University School of Public Health managing randomized controlled trials examining the residual effects of alcohol on occupational and academic performance, and the effectiveness of condom promotion interventions on STI reduction. Her interest in working with under-served communities to address health inequalities and cancer prevention and control brought her to the Viswanath Lab in 2006.
