Renee Mehra, PhD, MS

Dr. Mehra is an ACTIONS Postdoctoral Fellow. Her research explores how social and psychosocial factors influence inequities in maternal and infant health. Using ecosocial and intersectionality frameworks, her research examines mechanistic pathways and health and social policies that may reduce these health inequities. In particular, Dr. Mehra uses mixed methods research to examine and advocate for healthcare models and health policies to improve access and adequacy of prenatal care, such as sustainability of community health worker programs for reproductive-age women and expansion of Medicaid coverage for doulas.
