Overview

Dr. Nguyen obtained her PhD in Public and Community Health from the Medical College of Wisconsin, her Masters in Public Health from Dartmouth College, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of California, San Diego.

Her broad research interests are in exploring multiple determinants of health and reducing health disparities with a focus on the aging population, and her training and experience draws upon community-engaged approaches. Her research program explores older adults' perceptions of successful aging and the ways in which self-care behaviors fit into each individual's paradigm. Dr. Nguyen is particularly interested in the ways in which people with chronic conditions and illness view the concept of health and successful aging and how those views influence their goals, strategies, and behaviors for self-management. She currently has a research study explore self-management and successful aging among older men of color living with HIV.

Dr. Nguyen also teaches in USC's undergraduate Health Promotion and Global Health program
