Area of Focus

Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Across the Lifecourse

Research teams at the Institute work in many areas of health promotion and disease prevention across the life-course. Research in this area spans several areas related to the social determinants of health and health disparities, including infectious disease (e.g., HIV and Hepatitis C), chronic disease, and pregnancy and birth-outcomes.

Collectively, these projects, ranging from epidemiologic work aimed at understanding etiologic pathways and mechanisms of association among social determinants of health and related health outcomes, to targeted interventions, to advocacy and community engagement, address health promotion and disease prevention across the life-course.

At the Institute for Health Equity and Social Justice Research, faculty are engaged with efforts to:

  • reduce HIV acquisition
  • increase linkage to and retention in health care among people living with HIV and Hepatitis C
  • promote maternal and child health, particularly work addressing racial/ethnic disparities and understanding the transmission of poor birth outcomes across generations, differences by maternal race in transgenerational risk, and the significant role of intergenerational social and economic neighborhood context in perpetuating racia/ethnic disparities
  • reduce obesity and prevent chronic disease through examination of the availability of healthy food in urban areas and causes of obesity, food deserts and sedentariness. Our work provides evidence needed to advocate for policies and implement programs that increase the availability of healthy foods and access to physical activity in urban neighborhoods
