Alana M.W.  LeBrón

Profile

LeBrón, Alana M.W. , PhD, MS alebron@uci.edu

PhD, MS, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Assistant Professor, Program in Public Health & Chicano/Latino Studies

Research Interests: Dr. LeBrón’s primary areas of research include processes that shape the production, maintenance, exacerbation, and mitigation of social inequalities; implications of social inequalities for inequities in health; and opportunities for intervention. Much of Dr. LeBrón’s scholarship centers on the intersections of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic position, immigrant generation, immigration status, and gender with inequities in health, with a focus on the health of Latina/o communities and community-engaged strategies for understanding and addressing health inequities. Through qualitative and quantitative research methods, Dr. LeBrón’s scholarship examines the mechanisms by which racism shapes health inequities, and factors that disrupt these processes. For example, her research considers the health equity implications of immigration policies and sentiments towards immigrants, neighborhood social and economic contexts, and government-issued ID policies and practices. Dr. LeBrón’s scholarship also evaluates the health equity implications of community-driven strategies to mitigate these processes.
