As a research partner with the University of California San Francisco, she’s collaborated on several research studies, produced eight scientific publications, and trained a cadre of Latina cancer survivors in Southern and Northern California as peer support counselors.  Breast cancer entered Carmen’s life just four months after completing her doctorate in Clinical Psychology.
