Dr. Baig's main research interests are in mitigating health disparities in Latino populations. Her work to date has focused on: 1) using community-based participatory research methods to improve healthcare delivery to low-income minority communities; and 2) designing and evaluating church-based diabetes interventions to improve outcomes among Latinos; 3) formulating ways to use health information technology to address diabetes disparities; and 4) assessing services for Latino patients at community health centers.
