Title: Associate Professor and Vice-Chair of the Department of Prevention and Community Health at the George Washington University-Milken Institute School of Public Health; Founding Director of the Gill-Lebovic Center for Community Health in the Caribbean and Latin America at GWU-SPH.

What is your research? I am a public health scientist and conduct community-centered research in Puerto Rico, North and South America, and the Caribbean region. My work has focused on health equity through actions on the social determinants of health, with special attention to Latino communities, sexual and gender minority populations, and people affected by HIV.

Public health matters and community engagement is fundamental for a comprehensive and culturally appropriate response. I chose a career that matters to me and that I am passionate about.

What is the impact of your research? Improved access to and retention in primary care for LGBTQ populations, particularly Latinxs and people affected by HIV.

 

Title: Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Dornsife School of Public Health, Drexel University.

What is your research? Indian Trans Men and Transmasculine Health Study is a community-based research project. The study is led by a transmasculine Steering committee and researchers (trans and non-trans) from Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health (Philadelphia, USA) and the Population Council (New Delhi). Project partners include TWEET Foundation and Transmen Collective. Our Health Matters focuses on transmasculine people’s experiences in society and health care, and how they affect our health and well-being. Results will be shared back with the community and used to advocate for better access to health care and more affirming policies for trans men and transmasculine persons in India.

What is the impact of your research? As we collect data, our research process is positively impacting trans communities through employment, training, and capacity-building opportunities. Looking forward to the research findings that we are beginning to share, potential impacts include informing policy changes, specifically related to legal gender recognition and healthcare access.
