Jourdyn Lawrence

Jourdyn is a fourth-year PhD candidate studying the importance of measurement and methodology in assessing the impacts of discrimination on health outcomes. Her research interests also include quantitative methods in social epidemiology, measurement of race and racism, aging and brain health, and social policy. Jourdyn’s commitment to health and human rights and social justice stems from her lived experiences — as well as the experiences of others from marginalized and oppressed backgrounds — with the driving force being the changing of systems and structures that perpetuate marginalization and inequity. Jourdyn’s publications can be found here.
