Dr. Haggins’ primary research focus is on improving the delivery of emergency care services and reducing racial disparities in access to alternative outpatient care in ways that promote long‐term population health. Other research interests focus on developing an understanding of how prior and future healthcare reform affects use of ambulatory care services, primarily in the emergency department, as well as other outpatient settings. Another major area of interest is in understanding emergency department utilization trends and decision-making around seeking emergency department care. She also has received additional training in medical education and has interests in designing socio-cultural educational curricula, and in increasing diversity in the healthcare workforce through mentorship and professional development, particularly for underrepresented minority and first generation pre-med students.
