M.P.H., Public Health, University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, Chapel Hill
Ashley Weinberger received her M.P.H. in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Spring of 2019. She wrote her Master’s thesis on identifying barriers for prevention and treatment of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer in a global context. By comparing barriers across three countries globally, she was able to propose recommendations to program planners as a foundation for designing interventions in the HPV/cervical cancer field.
In addition to a large interest in HPV/cervical cancer, Ashley is interested in the fields of sexual health and HIV/AIDS. Through studying the intersection between HIV/AIDS and stigma Ashley has been able to identify systemic and sociocultural barriers of individuals accessing preventative measures and treatment for HIV/AIDS in the setting of Los Angeles County. By identifying an intersectionality framework in this context, Ashley works to advance service programs and research studies in these fields among the target populations served.
