About Kari A. Hartwig

Current projects include a study of refugee women, resilience and gardening, a qualitative impact evaluation of a community based organization in Minnesota supporting low-income families and individuals emerging from homelessness, teaching cultural competency in a physician assistant curriculum, and assessing burnout among Minnesota physician assistants.
