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. She was part of the 2015 National Institute on Aging Butler-Williams Scholars program and is current part of the first cohort of scholars in the UCSD Sustained Training for HIV and Aging Research program.

Her broad research interests are in social determinants of health and health disparities with a focus on successful aging outcomes in older adults living with HIV. Her training and experience draws upon community-engaged approaches. Her research program explores the factors that modify the relationship between life stressors and quality of life as well as ways in which health behaviors fit into each individual's paradigm of successful aging. Her current research projects explore successful aging among older men living with HIV and advance care planning among older adults with HIV.
