“The focus on methods and also life course theory has allowed me to conceptualize, design and implement studies in the area of maternal and child health and health care disparities. Both qualitative methods AND quantitative course work has been key.”
The Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health is grounded in a life course framework with domestic and international focal areas including: sexual and reproductive health, fetal origins of disease, maternal and perinatal health, child health, adolescent health, population & health and women's health. Skills emphasized in departmental training include: population sciences, behavioral science, program evaluation, evidence based advocacy and the translation of research for programs and policy.
