Thupten Dolma Phuntsog

“I am eager to undertake research concerning the Tibetan diaspora community, as my passions in public health lie in health disparities and inequities concerning immigrants and refugees. Once I obtain my PhD, I hope to become an educator and researcher and use these platforms to elevate research in under-served communities through a social justice and health equity lens and ultimately use those findings to improve the health and well-being of those communities. As I dedicate my life to helping others through the public health sector, I will strive to uphold the ethics of His Holiness throughout my personal and professional life. I look forward to carrying his principles of kindness and compassion into the spheres of research and academia and making a lasting, positive impact for the Tibetan community.”
