Elizabeth Lynch, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Preventive Medicine, Rush Medical College, Rush University
Elizabeth B. Lynch, PhD, synthesizes expertise in psychology, epidemiology and anthropology to develop novel, community-based interventions to improve health equity. The quality and strength of relationships she has developed with the community, and between the community and the academic medical center, have made it possible to design, lead, and test four NIH-funded, innovative community-based interventions to reduce cardio-metabolic risk in underserved populations. The community infrastructure she has developed supports numerous investigators, students, and community members to join in understanding the causes of health disparities, and develop individual and environmental solutions to alleviate them.
