 Presenter Information
Jean Breny, PhD, MPH
President of SOPHE. Professor, Southern Connecticut State University and Department Chair, Department of Public Health.
The goal of my research is to eliminate HIV disparities through community-based participatory action research that informs public health policy and practice. Research that helps us to understand social and cultural factors; such as norms, economics, poverty; and/or power imbalances by race, class or gender that affect individual health behaviors.
My past projects have included: formative research exploring long-term care needs of Latinos living with HIV/AID in New Haven; assessments and evaluations on HIV medication adherence programs; exploring the influence of sex ratio imbalances on HIV risk behaviors among low-income, African American women in North Carolina; and gender disparities among college students’ HIV beliefs and behaviors.
