II. RESEARCH



  1. Research in Progress, Not Funded:

Cross-sectional survey of North American university students (Haskell Indian Nations University, University of Kansas, First Nations University, University of Regina) to determine patterns of use of medicinal plant products. n≈2,000 This work is a collaboration between myself, my NIH IRACDA postdoctoral fellowship research supervisor (Dr. Kindscher), and my Canadian colleague (Dr. Gendron). Current WSU student working on this project is Mariam Zunnu Rain.
