New Faculty: Minakshi Raj
Department of Kinesiology and Community Health
Dr. Raj recently completed her PhD in health management and policy in the University of Michigan School of Public Health. She was a fellow in the Department of Learning Health Sciences.
Dr. Raj’s goal is to inform practice and policies that encourage family-centered care by integrating family caregivers of older adults and patients with cancer into health care teams through the use of technology. Some of her research investigates how patients and their family caregivers experience and sustain trust in the health care system and the implications of health information technology on trust.
“I was drawn to the multidisciplinary research in the department,” said Dr. Raj, “the supportive culture of the KCH community, and the collaborative and innovative spirit across campus.”
