Sex and Gender Differences in the Impact of Neighborhood and Policy Contexts on Health and Well-being

As a social epidemiologist, Dr. Theall’s research focuses on reducing health inequities by understanding and altering neighborhood environments and social policies for better health in underserved populations locally, nationally, and internationally. Part of this work is understanding how these environments shape health differentially based on sex as well as gender and the intersections of sex and gender with other forms of oppression (e.g., racism). Research conducted in her lab includes both secondary and primary data collection on both youth and adults, utilizing both quantitative and qualitative methods.
