Who We Are

Pamela Salsberry, PhDPamela Salsberry, PhD, RN, FAAN
Director, Community Engagement T2-T4
(614) 292-0894

Dr. Salsberry's long-standing program of research is in the area of health disparities and health equity. Most of this work has been concentrated in the area of maternal-child health. The overarching question that is threaded throughout this body of work concerns the pathways and mechanisms that link social and economic disadvantage to poorer maternal and child outcomes.

Her work has included diverse projects, including health policy work within the Ohio Medicaid agency and the development of health screening clinics for the underserved. She is particularly interested in examining the relationship between economic status, health behaviors and health outcomes (birth outcomes, and adult and childhood obesity) across racial and socio-economic groups. Much of this work focuses specifically on how early life disadvantage, particularly social and economic disadvantage, influences differential health development in African-American and white females, concentrating on markers of adolescent health (obesity, menarche timing, general health status) that are linked to later life chronic disease.
