Present/Future Directions 

After four decades of teaching in higher education, I will be retiring on June 1, 2021.

In my retirement, I plan to focus on tutoring English for Speakers of Other Languages who wish to learn or improve their English language skills; promoting the development of intercultural competence among health care professionals; and volunteering in Latinx communities to improve health equity in the United States and Latin America.
