Tiffany N. Ford, MPH, PhD conducts mixed methods well-being research that examines gendered racism in the health, economic, and social lives of Black people in the United States and considers what it would take for us to be well. Ford earned her PhD in Policy Studies from the University of Maryland College Park, is an alum of the UIC School of Public Health Community Health Sciences division, and completed her undergraduate training at the University of Miami. Dr. Ford’s policy writing is informed by her power-building and sharing relationships with community-based organizations, community-led coalitions, and individuals most impacted by structural oppression. These ongoing connections inform her work which traverses the social and structural determinants of health and well-being and policy interventions to advance health equity at institutional, systems, local, and state levels.
