Radhika Sharma-Gordon (MPH Manager of Education and Outreach at Apna Ghar, Inc) (Coordinator of the Health Sciences Field Experience Program, Northeastern Illinois University)


I am a community health educator who has been working in the Chicago area since 1989 in a variety of community, county, and statewide nonprofit organizations. My work has focused on immigrant community health and violence prevention. I am drawn to the SAHELI study because I am a public health geek who wants to learn more about chronic disease risk and protective factors in South Asian communities. I live in Chicago and enjoy exploring the city, completing word games, and traveling with my family.
