Research Interests:  Dr. Brown's research takes a fresh approach to examining race/ethnic differences in late life health and wellbeing. Her work aims to characterize not only the unique challenges minorities face in reaching old age (including disability, disease, and consequences of adversity), but also examines and fosters methods that embolden the positive outcomes and protective resources gained from adverse experiences among minority communities. This work takes a social justice approach, motivated by practical community needs, in addressing the heterogeneity in the aging experience among racial/ethnic minorities, especially for aging African Americans.
