Tran Huynh, PhD, CIH

Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Dornsife School of Public Health

Tran Huynh’s professional career has revolved around protecting workers’ health through research and teaching.  Currently, she is working with Vietnamese nail salon workers and stakeholders (e.g., beauty school owners, community leaders) to develop culturally appropriate interventions for Vietnamese nail salon workers in Philadelphia.  Her research interests in occupational health align with the Urban Health Collaborative’s goals of improving health in urban cities by raising awareness of the role of the work environment in the overall well-being of people in cities like Philadelphia. In developed countries such as the US, many hazardous jobs have shifted to immigrant workers who often have limited training and protection. In the modern global economy, manufacturing and hazardous jobs in developed countries are shifting to developing countries with lenient environment and workers’ protection laws. It is imperative that researchers and educators from developed countries also provide the technical training and awareness of workplace hazards to our international partners. As the Collaborative forges international partnerships, Dr. Huynh aims to promote workers’ rights to a safe and healthy work environment.
