Biography

Eunice integrates her clinical training and research work in a Bio-Psycho-Social-Cultural framework. Her research in children mental health covers from basic science on genetics and neurobiology to community-based advocacy, education and intervention. Prior to residency training, Eunice’s research focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms of emotional stress in synaptic transmission and plasticity (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/browse/collection/49501231/?sort=date&direction=ascending). Acculturative stress, a form of psychosocial stressor that experienced by most immigrants, negatively impacts children and families in our society. Eunice has developed a culturally- and family-oriented program in the Asian American community. Theatrical vignettes are used as an educational tool to promote Asian student mental health through strengthening child-parent relationship.
