Dr. Travonia Brown-Hughes’s research interests are grounded in the study of aging, care transitions, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care.  She has been active in the development and facilitation of several research and community-based projects with a focus on cognitive aging in diverse populations, barriers and facilitators to research participation among minorities, and co-morbidity and treatment burden in older adult populations.
