Research Interests: Social Capital and Health of Minority Older Adults

I am particularly interested in whether or not minority older adults have more social capital in their “own” community and how social capital functions to benefit elderly health. I am also interested in how measurements of mobility and manual dexterity can possibly be used as indicators of high social capital and well-being.
