Assistant Professor • School of Nursing
Social determinants of health in chronic illness prevention among the minority population is Dr. Joseph’s area of research interest. Seeing the disproportionately high complications from diabetes-related cardiovascular among Asian Indian patients while working as a nurse in the cardiac surgery unit sparked her interest in this field. As a first-generation immigrant researcher of Asian Indian descent, Dr. Joseph considers this a social responsibility to add knowledge about this population in the US.
Dr. Joseph was a Jonas Leadership Scholar (2018-2020) and is actively involved in the professional organization for Indian Nurses of America at local and national levels. She has held multiple leadership roles in the organization. Dr. Joseph also works as an administrator on duty at the University Hospital, Newark, New Jersey.
