I’m interested in the social determinants of health and promotion of health equity. I aim to work towards eliminating barriers to health and well-being that underserved populations disproportionately face through community research and intervention work.

My research interests include policy development and program evaluation of global mental health services through social behavior and psychology in Asian communities. I am also interested in developing evidence-based, race-equity focused solutions supported by qualitative methods.

I am interested in examining the social, environmental, and behavioral determinants of health— particularly with regards to food, food environments, and foodways—with an emphasis on achieving health equity through evidence-based interventions.

 


Julia Healey, MPH ’22
juliahealey@hsph.harvard.edu

I am interested in the structural social determinants of health in the US, particularly housing and how your zip code influences your health. I want to implement programs and policies to increase health equity related to these issues.


Kenny Nguyen, MPH ’22
kennynguyen@hsph.harvard.edu

I am interested in investigating the linkage between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and mental health outcomes throughout the life course. In addition, I am eager to learn more about how to address social determinants to health through community based interventions and polices.


Beth Stelson, PhD ’22
estelson@g.harvard.edu

My research uses a Total Worker Health approach to identify how working conditions in social services, healthcare, and low-wage settings affect the mental and physical health of workers, with an emphasis on studying vicarious trauma. I also work in the field of intimate partner violence and evaluation of abuse intervention programs.


Elise Bottimore Talbot, MPH ’22
elisebottimore@hsph.harvard.edu

I have a background as a critical care nurse with interests in the effects strengthening primary care systems have on combatting non-communicable diseases and maternal/child health conditions. I am passionate about health equity in low and middle income nations, and the many social determinants of health that drive these inequities. Additionally, I am interested in the use of community health workers as a lever to both strengthen primary care systems and drive gender equality.
