Gabriel L. Schwartz, PhD

Assistant Professor

Gabriel L. Schwartz (he/him/his), PhD, is a social epidemiologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Management & Policy, with a secondary appointment in Nursing at Drexel's College of Nursing and Health Professions. Dr. Schwartz' work examines how social stratification and the places we live shape health across the life course. It treats structural, racialized exploitation as a population health problem, including housing insecurity, segregation, and the criminal legal system. Ongoing lines of research specifically focus on the health impacts of eviction and on how racial segregation in our schools and neighborhoods bends health trajectories as children age, as well as descriptive work about the population health burden of police violence. Dr. Schwartz holds a PhD in Population Health Sciences from Harvard University and completed his postdoctoral training at University of California, San Francisco.
