Dr, Moreland and Dr. Poorna Kushalnagar, the founding director for the Center for Deaf Health Equity and chief research officer for the Office of Research, have collaborated for many years on health disparities research, with multiple publications addressing the health of the deaf and hard of hearing community.
Dr. Moreland also will work closely with Dominic Lacy, Chief Operating Office, to enhance the Student Health Services by implementing last year’s recommendations from the Design for Health Institute at the University of Texas at Austin.
