Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Brown University
Jennifer Nazareno, Ph.D. is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Brown School of Public Health/Center for Gerontology and Health Care Research (AHRQ T32). Her research interests are focused in the sociology of health and include: the biopolitics of aging, chronic illness and disability; political economy and the organization of care; race, gender, class and social determinants of health/health inequalities. Her research centers on the impacts of economic globalization on the organizational structure of the U.S. long-term care and mental health care systems. She examines how such structures arrange and shape the public-private divide, immigrant labor and ethnic entrepreneurship, reimbursement schemes and care provider-care recipient relationships. Dr. Nazareno received her Ph.D. in Medical Sociology from UCSF Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and her Master's degree in Social Welfare from the UCLA School of Public Affairs. She was the recipient of the 2015 UCSF Anselm Strauss Special Award for Distinguished Qualitative Dissertation and was previously awarded the Charlene Harrington Health Policy and the Carroll Estes/UCSF Institute for Health and Aging Research Fellowships.
