Dr. Nguyen-Truong is also a Faculty Affiliate in the Elson. S. Floyd College of Medicine including mentoring on Doctor of Medicine scholarly project. Dr. Nguyen-Truong has 20 years of expertise, of which 1.5 decades are in nursing education: clinical nursing in an array of intermediate care, population/community health nursing, and a nurse scientist and an educator. She has a clinical practice background in Intermediate Care at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center and community and population health nursing through her research partnerships with culturally diverse social services and health center. Dr. Nguyen-Truong is serving as the elected Board member on the Immigrant & Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) Board of Directors and the Past Board Chair of IRCO’s Pacific Islander & Asian Family Center Advisory Board. Dr. Nguyen-Truong’s program of culturally diverse/ transcultural/ intercultural and transdisciplinary/ interdisciplinary research regards academic and community-engaged research justice through utilizing a health equity and anti-racism lens. Her research program is focused on advancing the understanding of: 1) health promotion across the lifespan, including cancer control and prevention, and the intersection of health and learning systems, including prenatal/perinatal healthcare and early learning, and 2) diversity and inclusion in health-assistive and technology research including adoption in communities of color, including immigrant and marginalized populations. Dr. Nguyen-Truong is the Director of the Culturally Safe Didactic Dialogue Circles Program and a Director of the Health and Education Program for Micronesian Islanders that is funded in part by her research grants and have sustained major contributions in evidence and scholarship. Dr. Nguyen-Truong mentors and works with students, faculty colleagues, and community partners nested in cultural communities including Micronesian Islanders, Vietnamese, Chinese Mandarin, Chinese Cantonese, Korean, and Laotian, and also diverse communities in urban and rural areas. She led the development and implemented culturally safe and culturally responsive research engagement and educational curriculums and models and culturally sensitive artistic teaching modalities. Important outcomes for example, point to quality communications between students, faculty, and cultural community leaders regarding difficult and painful topics. This includes being immigrants; historical traumas including war, physical and mental torture as war captives, being monitored during imprisonment, forced permanent relocation of communities that the hydrogen testing bombs were dropped on in the islands; and having to build new lives and in the new western world – United States.

Dr. Nguyen-Truong led her research team and contributions in science helped to drive health policy change for data equity (House Bill 2134) that became law and illuminated a workforce diversity policy in addressing immigrants and refugees and a call for action for inequities among women and girls. She is an invited speaker and also invited for her mentoring in community participatory research in nursing and across disciplines including academia and community-based organizations. Program of research is supported by the Health & Education Fund Impact Partnerships including Northwest Health Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, Kaiser Permanente Northwest, Care Oregon, and Oregon Community Foundation; Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon Communities United Fund through the Wallace H.
