Rajashri is a pre-med student rising sophomore with an interest in disparities in health especially with respect to financial constraints in accessing the healthcare system for prevention and treatment and the possible link to poorer health status due to cost of care. This project was developed in collaboration with her faculty advisor based on her interests as well as her career aspirations to work with disadvantaged groups as a medical provider. The project was a semester long effort through the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities that involved learning about national datasets, downloading data codes and retrieval, extensive literature review, developing specific research aims and working with statistical software for basic data mining.
