The Epidemiology of Reproductive Justice
Shawnita Sealy-Jefferson, PhD, MPH, is an assistant professor in epidemiology at the Ohio State University College of Public Health and the Principal Investigator and leader of the Social Epidemiology to Eliminate Disparities (SEED) Lab. The mission of the SEED Lab is to conduct high quality epidemiologic research to find solutions to the disproportionate burden of infant mortality among African American women. Dr. Sealy-Jefferson is a social epidemiologist whose primary research seeks solutions to the long-standing racial disparity in infant mortality, in which African American women are twice as likely as White women suffer an infant death. The goal of her scholarship is to inform future intervention studies, policy change, and social activism. Sealy-Jefferson also has expertise in women’s health, urban health, and chronic disease epidemiology.
