Formative research that Baldeep led and contributed to laid the groundwork for a project that relies on community-based participatory research strategies and human-centered design. This project aims to develop an intervention in tandem with community health workers and community leaders to motivate vaccine uptake and acceptance in the community, and lead to long-term sustainable change. Baldeep led the study design, and she serves as a Co-PI on this project.
