Madina Agénor of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health was one of eight junior faculty from around the country who participated this summer in an intensive four-week program at Yale University aimed at advancing HIV/AIDS research by underrepresented minority academics.
Agénor, assistant professor of social and behavioral sciences at Harvard Chan School, was a Fellow in the annual Summer Institute sponsored by the Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS). Fellows in the program develop a pilot project proposal and receive mentoring on HIV community-based implementation science by top HIV researchers at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS at Yale.
Agénor’s research interests include intersectional health and health care inequities, cancer screening and prevention among marginalized groups, social inequalities in women’s and girls’ health and health care, LGBTQ health and health care, and community-engaged research.
