J’Mag Karbeah,M.P.H. (Ph.D. expected summer 2022) will be Assistant Professor of health policy and management at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Fall 2022. Ms. Karbeah’s research leverages her health services research and demography training to analyze the impact of structural racism on maternal and child health inequities. Her scholarship has done this by: (1) examining alternative perinatal care models to address inequities in access and quality that Black birthing people face, and (2) acknowledging and challenging how anti-Black racism is perpetuated through public health and medical institutions. Her dissertation work examines police contact as a form of structural racism impacting adolescent health outcomes.
