Click for event flyer
Lisa Bowleg is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Community Health and Prevention at the School of Public Health of Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Her research, publications, and presentation focus on: (1) intersectionality, stress and resilience in the lives of Black, lesbian, gay bisexual and transgendered people; and (2) the effects of structural factors (e.g., racism, poverty, incarceration, unemployment), gender roles, and sexual scripts on HIV risk among Black heterosexual women and men. Her academic accomplishments include a Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology and a M.A. in Public Policy, with a concentration in Women’s Studies from The George Washington University, Washington, DC.
She is the Principal Investigator of a National Institutes of Health-funded R01 focused on how structural factors, masculinity ideologies, and sexual scripts increase and reduce HIV risk in Black heterosexual men. Her most recent award is the 2008 Red Ribbon Award for Research from the Community Advisory Board of the Center for AIDS Research at the University of Pennsylvania.
An advocate for qualitative methods, particularly with populations who have historically been invisible in social science research, qualitative and mixed methods (i.e., qualitative and quantitative methods) are integral to her research. She teaches courses on qualitative research and analysis and intersectionality and public health.
She is a member of the Behavioral and Social Consequences of HIV/AIDS Study Section of the National Institutes of Health, and a member of the American Public Health Association, the American Psychological Association, and a former Chair of the APA’s Committee on Psychology and AIDS.
