RESEARCH INTERESTS / PROFESSIONAL OVERVIEW

Dr. Feldman is a recipient of a 5-year, nearly $1M HRSA Primary Care Medicine and Dentistry Clinician Educator Career Development Award. Her aim is to increase student and faculty engagement in interprofessional collaborative care through the development of formal curriculum and clinical collaborations with NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, NYU School of Medicine, NYU Steinhardt Department of Nutrition and Food Studies, and with numerous New York City community-based sites. Topics including respectful communication, an understanding of team dynamics in the promotion of population health, cultural competency, improving care for vulnerable populations, and innovative approaches to reducing barriers to access to care and to the integration of oral health and primary care will be woven into the predoctoral curriculum.
