Madelyne Greene received her PhD in Nursing Science in 2017 from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Dr. Greene’s research interests include disparities in sexual and reproductive health outcomes, specifically those experienced by sexual and gender minorities, and her dissertation work focused on the relationship between pregnancy and cervical cancer screening among sexual minority women. Her dissertation “Obstetric History and Sexual Health Screening Among Sexual Minority Women” was funded in part by the HANN Innovation Fellowship. Dr. Greene is interested in the larger problem of disparities in access to high quality, inclusive health care for sexual and gender minority groups. She is particularly interested in developing and testing strategies to improve the effectiveness of health care for sexual minority women and enhance their health care experiences. Her research is grounded in sociocultural theories that explain health outcomes in structural and sociopolitical contexts. Building on epidemiological frameworks to address disparities, she will employ these theories to investigate the role of health systems and health care encounters in driving prevention and health maintenance in sexual and gender minority populations.
