Cynthia Lakon

Profile

Website (Lab)

Cynthia Lakon, Ph.D.

clakon@hs.uci.edu
Associate Professor, Program in Public Health Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Research Interests: My research is motivated by the question of how social networks relate to health, specifically via social and cognitive mechanisms linking social networks and health behavior among adolescent and adult populations. My main theoretical interests include social networks, ecological models of health, Systems Science, peer influence, social support, decision making, and risk perception. I primarily focus on drug use behaviors of adolescent and the reciprocal and dynamic interaction of adolescent drug use behaviors with youth’s contexts of primary socialization, including peers, parents, and neighborhoods. Other areas of interest include social support networks for health behaviors using new media platforms, and injection drug use networks and needle use behaviors.

Alana M.W.  LeBrón

Profile

Alana M.W. LeBrón, Ph.D., MS

alebron@uci.edu
Assistant Professor, Program in Public Health; Chicano/Latino Studies Ph.D., MS, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

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.
