Dr. Rodriguez wins award for Community Engagement and Excellence in Research Impact

The Health Techquity Lab’s very own director Natalia Rodriguez received an award from the Department of Public Health for her interdisciplinary research in public health. 

Rodriguez’s research focuses on designing and implementing rapid diagnostic tests to address health disparities. 

The research in her lab addresses obstacles in public health, like the spread of COVID-19 in the homeless community and limited access to cervical cancer screening among minority communities. 

During the last year, Rodriguez’s research and involvement in the community has also won her the Horizons Faculty Mentor Impact award, the award for Emerging Scholar from Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, and a Woman of Distinction from the YWCA of Greater Lafayette Salute to Women.
