Comparative Ethnic Studies

An interest in race, gender, and applied medicine has encouraged Sonia Hart to travel throughout the world in pursuit of research and life adventures. Hart is in Comparative Ethnic Studies where she is researching western healing practices and the influence of race and gender in alternative healing methods used by Latinos.

She says that the Hellman Graduate Awards has allowed her to “delve into my graduate work with full attention and intensity, which I know will contribute to maximizing the breadth and depth of my research.”
