Dr. Haley is an Assistant Professor in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences in the Department of Health Sciences. Her research expertise includes studying the social determinants of health, with a focus on how features of the social and built environment, especially health policies, create disparities in health and health care utilization among people with or at increased risk for HIV. She utilizes multilevel, geospatial, and qualitative methods to explore these topics.
Dr. Haley’s most recent work focuses on the impact of health policies on substance use and related sequelae, with the goal of informing future policy responses and structural interventions designed to reduce overdose and increase access to drug and alcohol treatment.
Current Funded Research:
Dr. Haley is the Principal Investigator of a NIDA-funded K01 career development award entitled “Quantifying health policy impacts on substance use and treatment among women with and at risk for HIV: a longitudinal multilevel analysis using the Women’s Interagency HIV Study (7K01DA046307).” This career development award leverages longitudinal data from the Women’s Interagency HIV Study (2013 forward) to examine the impact of prescription drug monitoring programs, health parity laws, and medical and recreational marijuana laws on women’s substance use, drug and alcohol treatment, and HIV-related clinical outcomes.
Dr. Haley is also a co-Investigator on a NIDA-funded R01 entitled “Developing the Evidence Base for Overdose Policies: A Multilevel Analysis of NHBS (PI: Hannah Cooper, 1R01DA046197-01)”. This research integrates CDC National HIV Behavioral Survelliance data on ~38,800 people who inject drugs living in 20+ US metropolitan statistical areas in 2009, 2012, 2015, and 2018 with existing data on the places where these PWID live to learn whether and how specific drug- and health-related laws and place characteristics (e.g., spatial access to substance use disorder treatment) relate to a variety of overdose related outcomes among people who inject drugs, overall and by race/ethnicity, gender, age, and HIV status.
