Assistant Professor

Department of Mental Health

Johns Hopkins School of Public Health 

 

Sabriya Linton received the 2017–2018 Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions, Pilot Project award for her proposal, “The Impact of gentrification on social polarization, violence and sexually transmitted infections among Black adolescents and adults in Atlanta, Georgia”

The Pilot Project Program supports new and early stage investigators (ESI) with projects related to place-based determinants of health disparities and minority health.

Dr. Linton research focuses on identifying socio-contextual determinants of substance use and HIV, with particular interest in determining how community development and housing conditions influence these outcomes. In Baltimore and Atlanta, Dr. Linton has assessed the impacts of urban redevelopment and public housing relocations on substance use, sexual behaviors and social networks. Dr. Linton has also investigated the impacts of place-based characteristics, including gentrification, affordable housing, housing discrimination, and spatial access to health services on HIV/HCV risk behaviors, homelessness, and social networks among people who inject drugs.
