Research & Development Team
Research and Development strives to learn more about the communities we serve by networking with professionals in the medical and public health fields to inform our efforts. The team is also responsible for educating the associates of FISH in the background and health of these communities and evaluating the effectiveness of our computer lab. Currently, Research and Development is working on writing an IRB to gain a better picture of the social determinants of health using qualitative data from community members.

Director of Research and Development
Nicole Miller is a second year International Development Studies major from Thousand Oaks, California. She originally joined FISH during her freshman year for the opportunity to form long-term relationships with community members and learn more about global health. During her time in FISH, she has been humbly reminded of the complexity of health disparities in both Maclovio Rojas and Los Angeles and has enjoyed serving alongside other passionate FISHies. Nicole greatly values the connections she has made through FISH, and as R&D co-director, she hopes to continue FISH’s efforts in finding sustainable solutions to health barriers. Outside of FISH, Nicole is very involved in SCOPE Patient Health Advocates, the Global Development Lab, and her church. In her free time, she enjoys running, going to the beach, trying new food, and travelling.
