Our Center's work calls upon us to harness the power of research to drive policy change, challenge systemic racism, and champion health equity for all. Through rigorous inquiry, evidence-based advocacy, and unwavering dedication, research lights the way toward a future where every individual's right to optimal health is respected and upheld.

melody

Dr. Melody Goodman’s efforts seek to understand the social risk factors contributing to health inequities in urban areas to develop culturally competent, region-specific, and evidence-based solutions through collaborative activities with community members, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and other community health stakeholders. Her work aims to develop solutions for improving health in minoritized and medically underserved communities.

saba

Dr. Saba Rouhani's research is focused on characterizing the structural environment that influences the risk of overdose and other drug-related harms; she investigates the impact of harm reduction and overdose prevention initiatives, using results to identify implementation gaps and inform policy. 

adolfo

Dr. Adolfo Cuevas employs epidemiological, psychological, and biological approaches to investigate the effects of discrimination and other psychosocial determinants of health and health inequities. As a community psychologist, he uses population-level datasets and advanced statistical methods to understand how psychosocial determinants “get under the skin” and increase the risk of aging-related diseases.

Jemar

Dr. Jemar Bather's research interest lies in the novel application of statistical methods to address perennial public health challenges and advance health equity. He received his PhD and AM in Biostatistics from Harvard University, MS in Applied Statistics from NYU, and BS in Statistics from Penn State. His work has appeared in diverse outlets such as Health Education & Behavior, Statistics in Medicine, Environmental Health Insights, and the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes.

Brennan

Dr. Brennan Rhodes-Bratton is a Postdoctoral Associate at the Center for Anti-racism, Social Justice, and Public Health at the New York University (NYU) School of Global Public Health. Her professional and educational career to date comprises nearly a decade of experience in public health, including research in environmental health, built-environment, nutrition, and wellness education, community-based participatory research, health policy analysis, housing insecurity, extensive training in the application of social theory to public health problems, and applied experiences in PhotoVoice and intervention design, implementation, and evaluation. 

Dr. Rhodes-Bratton obtained both her DrPH and MPH at Columbia University. Her long-term career goal is to become a public health mixed methods researcher with expertise in theoretically-driven research and interventions, doing research grounded in sociological concepts and theories about the social and economic determinants of health and illness.

Dr. Goodman conducts applied biostatistical and survey research for community-based interventions and health inequities research with a strong focus on measurement. Additionally, through academic-community collaborations, she implements, evaluates, and enhances the infrastructure of community-engaged research, in order to mitigate health disparities.

Dr. Brennan Rhodes-Bratton’s research aims to understand how societal structures, such as structural racism, gentrification, and food stigma, impede healthful eating attitudes, dispositions, and practices of mothers across the lifespan, which in turn influence cardiometabolic health outcomes of their children. Dr. Rhodes-Bratton approaches her work using theories and methods from sociology, epidemiology, nutrition, and urban studies. She has developed a theoretical framework of food health lifestyles (FLT) and food habits to examine how neighborhood change can influence health outcomes. FLT is used to inform and create effective health equity programs for communities of color most impacted by social forces responsible for inequity.

Dra. McSorley is a public health scholar who combines her training in community health, political science, and public health advocacy to study how political systems work for or against the health and well-being of racial and ethnic minority communities, with a particular focus on Latinx communities. Using mixed-method approaches, she works to identify the pathways that connect political decisions, processes, and representation to the health inequities that emerge within Latinx populations in the United States.
