Dr. Madina Agenor
Madina Agénor, ScD, MPH, is the inaugural Gerald R. Gill Assistant Professor of Race, Culture, and Society in the Department of Community Health at Tufts University. As a social epidemiologist and health services researcher, Dr. Agénor investigates health and health care inequities in relation to various dimensions of social inequality – especially sexual orientation, gender identity, and race/ethnicity – using an intersectional lens. Specifically, she uses quantitative and qualitative research methods to elucidate the patient-, provider-, and policy-level social determinants of sexual and reproductive health and cancer screening and prevention among marginalized U.S. populations, especially sexual minority women and girls, transgender and non-binary individuals, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people of color. Dr. Agénor holds a Doctor of Science in social and behavioral sciences with a concentration in women, gender, and health from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a Master of Public Health in sociomedical sciences from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and a bachelor’s degree in community health and gender studies from Brown University.
