The aims of Dr. Threats' research program are to empower marginalized communities to engage in the design and implementation of informatics interventions and consumer health technologies that aim to combat intersecting, multi-level forms of discrimination, including but not limited to, racism and sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.
