We are excited to welcome three new postdoctoral fellows to the Health Disparities Research Scholars program!

Kierra Sattler, PhD received her PhD in Human Development and Family Sciences from the University of Texas at Austin. As an HDRS postdoctoral fellow, Sattler will investigate how maternal opioid use during pregnancy shapes children’s development and later experiences in different social systems, such as child protection, juvenile justice, and education.

Leigh Senderowicz, PhD earned her doctorate in Global Health and Population from Harvard University, and her MPH in Women's and Reproductive Health from Johns Hopkins. As an HDRS postdoctoral fellow, Senderowicz will explore patient-centered measures for reproductive health and develop new approaches to measurement and evaluation that promote reproductive autonomy. 

Vivian L. Tamkin, PhD received her PhD in Counseling Psychology, with a minor in Child Clinical Psychology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. As a HDRS postdoctoral fellow, Tamkin will examine health outcomes of African American mothers and infants in the first year postpartum/postnatal.

Looking forward to getting to know and work with these exceptionally accomplished researchers!
