Georgiana Bostean, sociology graduate student, has received an $8,600 National Science Foundation Fellowship award to study factors that impact and shape Latino immigrant health in the United States.
She will specifically be looking at factors such as marital status, parenthood, household
composition, and level of family conflict and cohesion and how they relate to overall
health of the Latino immigrant population living in the United States.
Her study began in September and will run through August 2010.
Bostean is in her sixth year of graduate study at UCI under advisor and professor Wang Feng, sociology.
