Hu Lab

We create and test culturally-tailored mobile health programs to improve outcomes in immigrant communities.

Welcome to the Hu Lab. We are based at the Center for Healthful Behavior Change in the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone. Our research mission is to reduce health disparities and improve health outcomes among low-income immigrant communities in the United States. To achieve this goal, our research focuses on developing and testing low-cost culturally and linguistically tailored mobile health programs to increase access to care and support chronic disease management in underserved populations.
