Eric Lam is a research analyst working with the National Core Indicators and National Core Indicators-Aging and Disabilities efforts. He is particularly driven by a passion to improve health systems and advocating for the policies that ensure equity for marginalized communities. Eric is highly skilled in data analytics and visualization using national level datasets. In addition, he has experience in mixed-method data collection and grant-writing.
Prior to joining HSRI, Eric was a Field Investigator at the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance, where their work addressed the HIV disparities among different communities disproportionately impacted by HIV, including gay and bisexual men, persons who inject drugs, and heterosexually active persons at increased risk of HIV infection. In addition, he worked on projects related to addressing internalized stigma among HIV-positive gay and bisexual men in sub-optimal HIV care using an intersectionality framework.
When not at work, Eric enjoys working out, going to brunch, and learning how to raise indoor plants (Rebecca Bunch the rubber plant).
