For more than a decade, Dr. Sabo has examined the social and political context of chronic disease among immigrant and migrating communities of the US-Mexico borderlands and indigenous peoples of the region – with a primary focus on the role and impact of Community Health Worker (CHW) interventions and advocacy on the social determinants of health of vulnerable populations. She has served as a Co-Investigator with the Centers for Disease Control funded Arizona Prevention Research Center and as Co-PI of an NIH – Heart, Lung and Blood-funded Global Alliance for Chronic Disease initiative to reduce cardiovascular risk among diabetic populations of Mexico. Dr. Sabo is a multi-disciplinary, community engaged scholar and uses community based participatory research, mixed, quantitative and qualitative methods and service-learning to understand structural vulnerability and identify community informed approaches to advance health equity.
