Faculty, Behavioral/Social/Health Educ

Whitney S. Rice, DrPH, MPH is a Rollins Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral, Social and Health Education Sciences at the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, and Director of the Center for Reproductive Health Research in the Southeast (RISE). Dr. Rice leverages training and transdisciplinary expertise from health care organization and policy, health services research, and maternal and child health disciplines in the pursuit of greater equity in sexual and reproductive health outcomes, care delivery, and scholarship. Her current research broadly examines the implications of structural stigma (stigma manifested at policy, institutional and systems levels) for healthcare utilization and health outcomes in family planning and other sexual and reproductive health contexts (i.e., HIV prevention and perinatal health). Dr. Rice is committed to patient and stakeholder-centered production and translation of scientific evidence, and to the mentorship and inclusion of trainees in this work. In 2019, Dr. Rice was awarded the Outstanding Young Professional Award by the American Public Health Association Sexual and Reproductive Health Section.
