Dr. Stidham Hall's research uses a biosocial framework, multi-level perspective, and interdisciplinary approach to understand and address the intersections between reproductive health and other dimensions of health and wellbeing during adolescence and young adulthood, in both the U.S. and in Africa. She is especially interested in the interrelated biological and social causes and consequences of early and unintended pregnancy and how those processes shape health disparities in family planning. Originally prepared in clinical medicine as a advanced nurse practitioner, I am also interested in integrated models of health care that concurrently address young women's reproductive health, mental health, and chronic disease. With training in epidemiology and demography, my methodological expertise lies in advanced quantitative analyses (e.g. multilevel and hazard models) and survey methods. Prior to joining the faculty in the Rollins School of Public Health, Kelli was a NIH “BIRCWH” K-12 Scholar and research faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.
