Research Interests

Dr. Carrie Lawrence is a practitioner-academic and public health advocate with several years of practice experience in nonprofit and social services.  Her applied research examines addressing social justice, health disparities and inequalities by empowering communities to collectively act upon their own health priorities, inform program design and development as well as health policy and system transformation. Dr. Lawrence has initiated several community-based participatory and translational research projects employing multiple methods that engage and empower community members in identifying, leveraging and sustaining local resources to promote and support individual health. Her current research explores the development of a health commons framework to address consequences of policy on local communities and through collective action local residents address deficits created by policy agendas counter to their goals.
