Michelle Shin, PhD, MPH, MSN, RN

Assistant Professor

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Child, Family, and Population Health Nursing. My research focuses on application of implementation science methods to address disparities in cancer prevention and care delivery among medically underserved populations domestically and abroad. I have clinical experience with health system navigation for racial/ethnic minority communities, including colorectal cancer screening for Asian Americans and indigenous community health workers in the Peruvian Andes. Currently, I am involved in multiple interdisciplinary projects that uses mixed methods and population-based data to understand and improve cervical cancer prevention (HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening) among underserved populations.
