Natalie Slopen joined the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Maryland College Park in the fall of 2014. Dr. Slopen’s research focuses on social influences on health, health disparities, and psychological and biological mechanisms through which childhood experiences are embedded to increase risk for later chronic diseases. The overarching goal of her research is to identify processes and conditions that can be targeted by interventions in order to reduce health disparities and promote health over the life course.
