SBS 526 Seminar Series: "How context drives disparities in global adolescent reproductive health and rights: A social-ecological perspective."

Jewel Gausman, ScD, MHS, is a social epidemiologist who focuses on applying cross-disciplinary qualitative and quantitative methodologies to understand the social and structural drivers of disparities in global maternal and child health. Her research centers on how the broader social ecological system perpetuates health inequity as manifest across a range of health outcomes relating to women and children’s health and development, especially within the domain of sexual and reproductive health and rights. Dr. Gausman is currently a Senior Research Associate at the Women & Health Initiative at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where she also received her ScD in social epidemiology. In addition, she holds a MHS in International Health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
