I am reviewing applications for fall 2024 Admissions Heading link

Dr. Hsueh will be reviewing applications for doctoral students to begin Fall 2024.


Loretta Hsueh, PhD is a clinical health psychologist (a psychologist who integrates behavioral, psychosocial, structural, political, and biomedical science knowledge to better understand human health) and a health services researcher (someone who researches how behavioral, psychosocial, structural, political, and organizational factors affect access to and receipt of health care).

Her research focuses on improving type 2 diabetes health among immigrants and people of color. Her research follows two lines of questioning. First, what accounts for the disproportionate burden of diabetes observed among immigrants and people of color, and what can be done to prevent it? Second, how do these populations experience healthcare, and how do these experiences impact disease progression?
