Associate Professor Emerita of Nursing

Anne M. Teitelman’s early work as a nurse practitioner and her dissertation on adolescent girls set her on a course of research, teaching, and clinical practice focused on improving the life trajectories of marginalized adolescent girls and young women. Much of her research focuses on understanding the context within which they make health decisions, especially about their sexual health.

What influences health? How can we improve health especially for disadvantaged populations?

“In our research we look at multiple factors that influence both resilience as well as challenges people face when confronting conditions such as HIV, sexually transmitted infections, cancer, violence and abuse. From there we build interventions to reach people where they are, to provide the tools and resources they need to live healthy and productive lives.”
