Caitlin Caspi, ScD, is an Assistant Professor in Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Minnesota. She completed her undergraduate studies at Brown University and her ScD at the Harvard School of Public Health. Her research interest is in evaluating policies and interventions addressing the social determinants of health. She currently serves as the Principal Investigator on two NIH R01 studies addressing food insecurity and diet-related health disparities. The first is a group-randomized study evaluating the impact a behavioral economic intervention (SuperShelf) in food pantries on dietary outcomes of adults experiencing food insecurity. The second is a natural experiment testing the effect of the Minneapolis Minimum Wage Ordinance, which incrementally raises the minimum wage in Minneapolis to $15 an hour, on diet-related measures and obesity. More recent work has addressed the social determinants of health in the clinical setting, including a food insecurity screen-and-intervene study in the pediatric emergency department setting at Children’s Minnesota.  She currently serves as an Associate-Director of the Healthy Eating and Activity across the Lifespan (HEAL) Center at the University of Minnesota, which has a mission to integrate research, policy, practice, and community resources to reduce weight-related health disparities.
