• Professor Dulin

    Faculty in Focus: Akilah Dulin, Ph.D.

    Community is the thread that runs through the teaching, research, and policy work of Associate Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences Dulin, a medical sociologist studying how ‘resilience,’ or the ability to flourish in spite of adversity, may lead to better HIV-related outcomes.

Faculty in the School of Public Health take an integrated approach to improving people's lives. Their research begins before conception, through research on environmental exposures that affect fertility and cause birth defects. It continues through the prime of life: targeting the behavioral choices that threaten well-being—tobacco and substance abuse, obesity, risky sexual behaviors—and encouraging wellness and healthy aging—physical activity, nutrition, injury prevention. And at the end of life, Brown researchers advocate for a patient-centered, research-based approach to terminal illness that considers a person's values and beliefs.

Their work impacts people around the world, thanks to partnerships forged locally and globally, from Providence's South Side to South Africa.
