Overview Publications Professional Background

 


Susie Hoffman, Dr.P.H. is Associate Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and a Research Scientist at the HIV Center. She teaches in the Department of Epidemiology, and is an Investigator with the HIV Center's Statistics, Epidemiology, and Data Management Core and the Development Core.

 

Trained as a social epidemiologist, her work centers on the social structural and behavioral aspects of HIV prevention and care, with a special emphasis on gender and sexuality. Current prevention-related research interests are alternate HIV/STD prevention methods, including evaluation of female condom interventions to promote uptake and use; behavioral aspects of biomedical interventions – vaginal microbicides and male circumcision; structural (e.g., gender) and behavioral (e.g., multiple concurrent partnerships) drivers of the epidemics in Southern and Eastern Africa; and migration processes as shaping HIV risk-related behaviors and exposures, in particular among black West Indian immigrants to the US.

 

Recently, Dr. Hoffman has undertaken work on the social and behavioral aspects of the roll-out of testing and treatment in Africa. She was awarded a four-year grant to conduct a prospective cohort study of the social structural (poverty, gender, and stigma), health care system, and individual mental health, social support, and cognitive facilitators and barriers to engaging and staying in HIV primary care following an HIV+ diagnosis among South African women and men; and she is co-investigator on a grant to identify the multi-level determinants of late initiation of ARVs in under-resourced nations.
