Sarah Andrea, M.P.H., investigates gender, racial and class-based inequities in health. She will deliver the 2019 Research Week Student’s Choice Keynote Address.
Andrea recently completed her dissertation defense in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. Her research on the health impact of precarious tipped service work was fueled by her personal experience growing up in a working class family.
Personal experience also drives Andrea’s passion for mentorship and student advocacy. Alongside her commitment to research is a determination to leverage her growing academic social capital to break down the barriers faced by students — especially those from marginalized populations.
