Gabriele Ciciurkaite will join our faculty in 2016 after completing her PhD in Sociology at the University of Kentucky.  Gabriele is a medical sociologist with research expertise in the social determinants of health, social stratification and quantitative methods. Her recent interdisciplinary work informs public health efforts to reduce health disparities. Her current research focuses in two primary areas: (1) the intersection of gender, race and socioeconomic status and the ways these social factors create and sustain heath disparities; and (2) chronic illness prevention and management among vulnerable populations. Her work has been published widely in interdisciplinary and applied academic journals.
