She is a Research Fellow at the Massachusetts General Hospital Medical Practice Evaluation Center. Dr. O’Laughlin conducts research focused on assessing health needs of refugees and on designing and evaluating refugee-specific interventions to improve care for this vulnerable population. She works in collaboration with Medical Teams International and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to evaluate the HIV care continuum in Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Presently she is evaluating the health behavior and ecologic context influences on HIV care among refugee populations, to gain a more in-depth understanding of linkage to HIV care in Nakivale. These data will help her to design, implement and evaluate an informed HIV linkage intervention in this setting (K23 MH108440-01A1).
